This study aimed to identify the terminologies of NANDA-I, NOC, NIC, and NNN linkages that have been used for nursing home (NH) residents. This study used a retrospective descriptive design. Data accrued from 57 registered nurses (RNs) in 25 Korean NHs. The RNs randomly selected one resident and assessed for applied NANDA-I, NOC, and NIC from the previous 7 days by reviewing nursing charts and records. Finally, the data of 57 residents in 25 NHs were collected. Results: We identified seven NNN linkages: risk for falls–fall prevention behavior–fall prevention; self-care deficit: bathing/hygiene–self-care: activities of daily living (ADL)–self-care assistance: bath-ing/hygiene; impaired memory–memory–cognitive stimulation; chronic confusion–neurological status: consciousness–medication management; chronic confusion–memory–medication manage-ment; impaired walking–mobility–exercise promotion: strength training; and impaired walking– ambulation–exercise promotion: strength training. The identified core NANDA-I, NOC, NIC, and NNN linkages for NH residents from this study provide a scope of practice of RNs working in NHs.
