The benefits of structured data are widely accepted within the nursing informatics community. However, despite the exis-tence of structured data in the form of well-established nurs-ing terminologies, computer-based nursing record systems are yet to achieve widespread adoption and few of the poten-tial benefits have yet to be realized. In this paper we argue the need for tools and techniques to support the entry of structured nursing data into computer-based systems. In the absence of a generally accepted solution, we build on preliminary work carried out at the 2002 Nursing Terminology Summit and analyze the results of other studies in order to identify a preliminary set of requirements or desiderata for such tools and techniques. These requirements are centered on: how structured data is presented to users for selection; how to mediate between a variety of conceptual structures -terminologies, information models, user interface models and models of the clinical process; and how to reduce the considerable modeling burden through re-use of modeling constructs. Further applied research is needed with the ultimate goal of developing a general solution that will benefit nurses, other professionals and ultimately their patients.
