Why does NANDA-I charge a fee for access to its nursing diagnoses?

NANDA International

In any field, development and maintenance of a research-based body of work requires an investment of time and expertise, and dissemination of that work is an additional expense. As a volunteer organization, we sponsor committee meetings for review of submitted diagnoses, to ensure they meet the level of evidence criteria. We are working on educational courses and offerings in English, Spanish and Portuguese due to the high demand of this content. We have committee members from all over the world, and the cost of videoconferencing and the occasional face-to-face meeting is an expense – as are our conferences and educational events. Our fees support this work on a break-even basis, and are quite modest in comparison to fees charged for a license to ICD-10 medical diagnoses.
