dc.description.abstractAim To explore the visibility of nursing in policy documents concerning health care priorities in the Nordic countries.Background Nurses at all levels in health care organisations set priorities on a daily basis. Such prioritization entails allocation of scarce public resources with implications for patients, nurses and society. Although prioritization in health care has been on the political agenda for many years, prioritization in nursing seems to be obscure in policy documents.Methodology Each author searched for relevant documents from their own country. Text analyses were conducted of the included documents concerning nursing visibility.Results All the Nordic countries have published documents articulating values and criteria relating to health care priorities. Nursing is seldom explicitly mentioned but rather is included and implicit in discussions of health care prioritization in general.Conclusion There is a need to make priorities in nursing visible to prevent missed nursing care and ensure fair allocation of limited resources.Implications for nursing management To highlight nursing priorities, we suggest that the fundamental need for nursing care and what this implies for patient care in different organisational settings be clarified and that policymakers explicitly include this information in national policy documents.en_IE
