Delivers unique systematic guidelines for understanding and applying EBP in nursing programs

A fundamental, reader-friendly guide to evidence-based practice (EBP) for BSN, MSN, and DNP nursing students, Evidence-Based Practice in Nursing explains the conceptual underpinnings of EBP and demonstrates how nurses can put EBP concepts into practice. Replete with critical knowledge, skills, tools, and scholarly development to enable nurses to fully and confidently deliver the highest-quality EBP care, this book eschews a one-size-fits-all approach in favor of unique systematic guidelines for understanding and applying EBP. Building blocks of information grow progressively more complex, enabling their application to any point along nursing’s academic trajectory.

Thoughtfully organized to fit a variety of EBP-related course objectives, Evidence-Based Practice in Nursing easily adapts for standalone EBP courses at any level as well as advanced practice specialty courses that integrate EBP content. This book addresses the needs of all nursing instructors, including those who teach at multiple levels simultaneously. Key content includes requisite conceptual knowledge of EBP for building clinical decision-making skills; conceptualizing, implementing, and evaluating EBP projects; applying translational science; quality improvement for implementation and evaluation of EBP; developing leadership and structural empowerment strategies; and analyzing how students at each degree/level work with EBP independently, interprofessionally, and intraprofessionally. Chapters align with AACN essentials.

Key Features:

  • Follows a methodical systematic trajectory, building from simple to complex concepts
  • Includes abundant examples demonstrating both negative and positive EBP applications
  • Enables instructors to adopt one textbook for students at different levels of knowledge and education
  • Includes practical design templates for developing EBP implementation plans with critical guideposts
  • Provides a quality improvement toolkit, key words and concepts, illustrative tables, and figures
