—In this paper, scientometrics was adopted to
analyze the citation data of multiple articles to identify the
paradigm shift in nursing management. Nursing management is
crucial in health care practice. By analyzing 120 656 citations of
5958 articles regarding security and privacy in the health care
field, published from 2003 to 2012 and obtained from the
Science Citation Index and Social Sciences Citation Index
databases, the intellectual structure of nursing management in
health studies was mapped to determine its development. After
executing keyword analysis and tag cloud analysis, “nursing,”
“management,” “care,” “health,” “quality,” “research,” and
“education” were the emerging topics related to security and
privacy in the health field. The findings of this study can provide
valuable insights and implications regarding the nursing
management of health. The mapping results can be used as a
valuable tool for researchers to access the literature in this field.
