Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the work activities of nurse-led rapid response teams (RRT). Methods: For this study a methodological approach was used to identify work activities for nurse-led RRT. The study was conducted in two stages. The first step was to analyze the work activities of domestic nurse-led RRTs using the interview method, and then develop a questionnaire based on the results of the interviews. As a second step, field surveys were conducted by nurse-led RRT nurses to investigate importance and performance based on the developed questionnaire. Results: Fifty-eight work activities were identified for nurse-led RRTs in the following nine core areas: advanced nursing practice, education, counseling, consultation, collaboration, ethical decision-making, research, evidence-based practice, and leadership. Conclusion: The identified work activities for nurse-led RRTs will be used as basic data in nurse-led RRTs job description, developing job standards and can also serve as basic data for developing a nurse-led RRT educational curriculum. The results of this study suggest that follow-up research is needed to develop job standards based on the identified nurse-led RRT's work activities.
