Abstract
Nursing programs everywhere are looking to evidence-based practice (EBP) with renewed enthusiasm. This is often sparked by an effort to elevate clinical quality and improve outcomes, but nursing programs also turn to EBPs as a way to reinvigorate the practice environment. EBP de-emphasizes ritual or ungrounded opinion as a basis for practice, and instead stresses the use of protocols and procedures substantiated by evidence. Changing bedside practice is no easy undertaking. Ultimately, establishing and maintaining EBP requires a shift in culture. Few nursing programs have historically emphasized evidence. Many hospitals are starting from scratch as they encourage nurses to read, evaluate, and use evidence in their daily practice. Evidence-Based Nursing Practice provides lessons for establishing a culture of evidence, with an emphasis on nurse-led EBP. Such lessons were gleaned from hospitals that have successfully sustained an EBP program, as well as those that are in the nascent stages.
