Background: Nursing terminology classification enables us to express nursing knowledge in a manner that can be shared across disciplines and care settings. Nursing educators in Israel are committed to training students toward integrating and promoting the use of nursing terminology. This study will display the process of promoting the use of nursing terminology classification among nursing students.
Objectives: To display the process of training nursing students toward integrating and promoting the use of nursing terminology, by using tools that were especially developed for this purpose: a pocket booklet and an intranet site.
Methods: It is an action study. Two innovative tools were developed the tools were distributed among 50 nursing students, to be used in their clinical practice. At the end of their clinical practice, the students filled a questionnaire for the tools' evaluation.
Results: The pocket booklet was a successful tool; whereas, the intranet site was less successful, since it was not accessible to the student nurses on the wards.
Conclusion: This study can serve as an example of how nurses can lead changes in the nursing profession. The use of appropriate, useful, friendly and secured tools in nursing education can provide a more professional way of learning for the benefit of the nursing profession and the health customers.
