Abstract

Inconsistent, incomplete reporting of computer applications in nursing is a barrier to building a knowledge base in the field. Progress in building this knowledge base might be accelerated if system developers could use the available literature to build upon work previously done and to profit from lessons already learned. This article presents guidelines for developing articles and reports on computer applications in nursing. Important topics include statement of the problem, proposed solution, description of the system, system impact, relationship to previous work, problems encountered, lessons learned, professional issues, transferability, and future plans. A checklist is provided. The authors welcome comments on these guidelines.
