ACENDIO - The Association for Common European Nursing Diagnoses, Interventions and Outcomes – is a membership organisation that provides an international network for nurses
We promote and develop Standardised Nursing Languages (SNLs), as nurses need to be able to share and compare information about practice in order to research and improve care, to manage nursing resources effectively and to ensure that nursing is visible in local, national and European policies

ACENDIO helps you by promoting the development of nursing’s professional language to describe the practice of nursing.
Standardised Nursing Classifications have potential to document, retrieve and share meaningful nursing data. As examples, the International Classification of Nursing Practice (ICNP) is a reference classification; the NANDA-I, NOC and NIC are clinical classifications defining the knowledge of nursing in all settings, the FINCC and the OMAHA are used in home and acute care
