Abstract

Challenges associated with the use of secondary data sources for benchmarking in nursing administration research are identified. A methodological approach for ensuring data consistency is presented in part one of this two-part series. Part two (September 2000) will provide an analysis of the nursing management data, based on a set of nursing and financial resource benchmarking variables identified by the senior nurse executives of these sites. Initial findings show evidence of data consistency across similar hospitals.
