This study aimed to report on information security in nursing that considers the technical, physical, and administrative aspects of information. We used a hybrid model to analyze the concept and conducted on-site interviews. The analysis revealed 7 attributes: physical aspect: environmental control, facility stability; technical aspect: information accessibility, taking advantage of features; and administrative aspect: systematicity of work, execution of education, professional responsibility. Our model could help identify the physical, technical, and administrative attributes and definitions of information security in nursing. © 2020 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
