These are essential tools for documentation of nursing process by methodology of assessment, diagnosis, interventions, outcomes, evaluation and documentation of patient care. Nursing minimum data set (NMDS) is the first action for standardization of gathering unified and essential nursing data for using in multiple sets and patient groups.

In all NMDSs, Nursing data elements divided to three groups: Nursing care, patient and service elements. There is a nursing minimum data set for nursing management in US. There is no NMDS in Iran. Conclusion: Since every countries of this study have a domestic NMDS and also there is no standard in Iran for which data elements must include in Electronic Health Records, then creating an Iranian Nursing Minimum Data Set (IrNMDS) is essential.
