70 years of RN effectiveness: A scoping review to build a comprehensive database of evidence

In a collaborative project between the RNAO IABPG Research Team and the Policy Department, a scoping review was conducted in order to create a comprehensive electronic database of Registered Nurse (RN) effectiveness.

The database includes studies exploring the effectiveness of RNs on clinical/patient outcomes, organizational/nurse outcomes, and financial outcomes over the past 70 years. We have made the database freely available as a PDF reference list, as well as an EndNote file.

This database can be used for evidence-informed decision making by policy-makers, researchers, and health care administrators. Please see the links below.
