Evidence-based practice makes nurses more effective, dynamic

Welcome to evidence-based practice digital edition. We've designed these digital resources to provide comprehensive information on different topics that will engage and inform nurses in all settings and specialties. In this edition we look at EBP, a topic sure to be of interest to nurses who want to elevate their professional practices.
The concept of evidence-based nursing dates back to nursing's founder, Florence Nightingale, a pioneer in using the science of statistics in her patient care. Once considered something that would only interest practicing nurses, EBP also is an important nursing education tool for preparing knowledgeable, competent nurses. Today, nurse leaders as well as novice nurses and nursing students embrace this practice as a vital force in driving quality care.

Evidence-based practice provides opportunities for nursing care to be more individualized, streamlined and dynamic. It also maximizes the effects of nurses’ clinical judgment and experience. The need for EBP in nursing is now widely accepted, as is the importance of knowing what constitutes hard evidence. To date, many EBP models have been designed to help nurses get the best evidence available for use in their patient care, whether the evidence comes from empirical information, research, expert opinions, case studies or other sources.

Maybe you're wondering what is the best way to implement an EBP model at your organization or how EBP can help you keep your own practice current and move your career ahead. We hope you’ll find answers to these and other questions in this convenient digital resource. We have filled it with relevant and useful articles that you’ll go re-read often for specific answers and information.
