Impulsivity is a central concept for many psychological models and interventions. Despite extensive research, the concept of impulsivity lacks clarity due to the diversity of definitions provided. The aims of this study were to conduct a concept analysis of impulsivity to provide a clear and workable definition of impulsivity for future nursing research. This study used Rodgers' evolutionary concept analysis approach to analyze 37 articles from various disciplines. Our analysis offers promising direction in refining the concept. The findings can drive future research and enhance nurse researchers' ability to attend and explore health-related issues associated with the concept.
