Nursing Knowledge Model
Data, information, Knowledge, Wisdom (DIKW) Framework
The Data, Information, Knowledge, Wisdom (DIKW) framework is one of the core conceptual frameworks for the practice of nursing informatics. However, in order for the framework to be effective, nurses must define knowledge, within electronic health records, to accurately capture the context of nursing practice. o
Nursing overview of the DIKW framework can be found in:
American Nurses Association. (2008). Nursing informatics: Scope and standards of practice. Silver Spring, MD: nursesbooks.org.

Nursing actions are based on the interrelations between the concepts used in nursing. Decisions are based critical thinking which is guided by knowledge. It’s pertinent that we provide information and knowledge for nurses to use during the process of care. Nursing knowledge has been referenced since the onset of nursing, therefore, how knowledge is defined and how it is represented in EHRs is cited here: o
