Nurse leaders working with large volumes of interdisciplinary healthcare data are in need of advanced guidance for conducting analytics to improve population outcomes. This article reports the development of a roadmap to help nursing leaders use data science principles and tools to inform decision-making, thus supporting research and approaches in clinical practice that improve healthcare for all. A consensus-building and iterative process was utilized based on the Cross-Industry Standard Process for Data Mining approach to big data science. Using the model, a set of components are described that combine and achieve a process for data science projects applicable to healthcare issues with the potential for improving population health outcomes. The roadmap was tested using a workshop format. The workshop was presented to two audiences: nurse leaders and informatics/healthcare leaders. Results were positive and included suggestions for how to further refine and communicate the roadmap.
