Comprehensive nursing cares are important to provide total healthcare for the patient. However, there are miss nursing cares that nurses left to be done. This research is aim to discover the varieties of missed nursing care and to understand their possible impacts on nurses and patients. A systematic review was utilized. Data were collected from six databases: ScienceDirect, ProQuest, Scopus, SAGE, PubMed, and Wiley, from 2015 to 2019. Search results from the six databases (n = 2934) sorted into 18 collected articles emphasized on three categories: missed nursing care, influencing factors, and impact of nursing care. The factors of missed nursing care are nurses’ perception on patient safety, self-accountability, etc. The possible effects are patient and nurse satisfactions decline, and cost swell. Planning, intervention, and documentation are notoriously often missed by nurses. The reasons behind this issue are nurses’ characteristics, HR problems, communication, workspace, and manager influence. These will have a great impact on patient satisfaction and nurse job satisfaction. Therefore, the role of nursing managers is large in improving missed nursing care.
