intensity of nursing care a term in the nursing minimum data set, defined as the total time and staff mix of nursing personnel resources consumed by an individual patient or client during the episode of care under review.

in·ten·si·ty

(in-ten'si-tē),
1. Marked tension; great activity; often used simply to denote a measure of the degree or amount of some quality.
2. The magnitude of acoustic energy, energy flux, field strength, or force.
