The purpose of the study was to identify Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) interventions performed by Korean school nurses. The Korean data were then compared to U.S. data from other studies in order to identify differences and similarities between Korean and U.S. school nurse practice. Of the 542 available NIC interventions, 180 were selected as the basis of a questionnaire designed to quantify key aspects of school nursing practice. The data were collected from 131 school nurses working in Korea. The results indicated that Korean school nurses focused on classifications from the Physiological Basic domain. Comparisons to previously reported U.S. data reflect that U.S. school nurses focus primarily on the Behavioral domain. The data reflect important differences between the practice characteristics of Korean and U.S. school nurses. Further, the data support the utility of NICs in quantifying the practice characteristics of school nurses in Korea. (Contains 4 tables.)
