The National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators (NDNQI®), a repository for nursing-sensitive indicators, is a program of National Center for Nursing Quality®. NDNQI® is the only database containing data collected at the nursing unit level. As you peruse this site, you will be able to obtain information on its history, a menu of NDNQI® nursing-sensitive indicators, NDNQI® enrollment procedures, samples of quarterly reports to participating facilities, and examples from facility nurse liaisons of how NDNQI® reports have been used to improve care. This nursing quality information can then be used by healthcare centers to make informed staffing decisions and improve patient outcomes, as well as by researchers who are granted access to data through the NDNQI® Research Council.
