Background and objectives: The purpose of this review study is to determine the situation of executive structures, governmental policies, education, infrastructures for developing the nursing informatics and its applications in order to extract the experiences in developing of nursing informatics and its applications at the national level. Materials and methods: This review study conducted in 2011-2012 and information gathered from related organizations' web sites, national related published documents in selected countries. Results: Education and promoting competences were an integral part of the development plan. The first step forward providing of information infrastructures is the selection of a nursing minimum data set. For standardized nursing language, the countries follow different approaches. Nursing information systems with various capabilities and decision support mechanisms operate in the form of fully integrated in those countries. Conclusions: To develop informatics in nursing, nations should initiate educational programs and follow from a strategic plan, that is included steps toward the providing of needed competencies, standards and policies for coordinated development.
