Starting in the mid-1990s, nurse informaticists at the ANA sent NLM the NANDA Taxonomy, Home Health Care Classification (HHC), an early version of NIC, and the Omaha System. 32 Nurse informaticists also subsequently added and periodically updated other nursing terminologies for new versions of the UMLS® Metathesaurus. Later in the 1990s, nurse informaticists also began integrating nursing concepts into the Systemized Nomenclature of Medicine Reference Terminology (SNOMED RT®), a comprehensive system of machine-readable clinical concepts.

The typical nurse will have a specialty area such as perioperative nursing as a central focus and then use the concepts of data, information, knowledge, and wisdom to provide effective healthcare delivery regardless of where he or she works.
