Skip to main content
The International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNP) is an agreed terminology, or dictionary of terms or expressions, that may be used to represent nursing practice consistently in any setting. It does this through statements that reflect what nurses observe and the care that they give. As an international terminology, it is essential that ICNP expressions are represented in a range of spoken languages to meet the needs of nurses globally and to ensure that the contribution of nursing to health and care is represented appropriately.

ICNP is an integral part of SNOMED. SNOMED has its own guidance regarding translation. This guide seeks to support the translation of ICNP independently from SNOMED.
