|Abstract:||The effective management of resources used in providing nursing services requires cost data based on nursing activities.

The conceptual framework used for Activity-Based Costing, introduced by Kaplan and Cooper (1998), is composed of four steps: 1) develop the activity dictionary, 2) determine how much the organization spending on each of its activities, 3) identifying the organization’s products, services, and customers, and 4) select activity cost drivers that link activity costs to the organization’s product, services, and customers. The subjects of the study include 10 nurses and 8 nursing assistants, and the nursing activities provided to emergency and critical patients admitted in the Intensive Care Unit, McCormick Hospital from August 1, 2019 to September 30, 2019. The instruments used in this study, developed by the investigator, consisted of the activity dictionary, time spend record form for activities, and the data record forms for labor costs, material costs, and capital costs. All instruments were confirmed for objectivity by three experts and the interrater reliability of the two data collectors was 1.0. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics.
