Participation in NDNQI® has grown from the original 30 hospitals in the pilot project to over 1400 facilities today, and continues to grow and attract a diverse array of healthcare facilities. The NDNQI monograph is a biannual publication highlighting the successes of participating hospitals. Participating NDNQI facilities who have sustained an improvement in a designated nursing sensitive indicator share their NDNQI experiences, in the words of the nurses who worked with the data that has improved patient outcomes. Each of the monograph's profiles summarizes its startup efforts and details the quality measurement, reporting, and the resulting quality improvement. The historical context of the NDNQI program is also discussed, along with its conceptual and technical development and its role in nursing's ongoing contributions to quality care. The books provide tools to improve multiple nursing sensitive indicators. They are an excellent reference guide for staff nurses, CEOs, nurse executives, NDNQI site coordinators, educators, researchers, quality improvement professionals and other healthcare professionals concerned with quality issues.
