NUR 440 - Research and Evidence Based Practice

This guide is to assist NUR 440 students in using nursing databases, learning about EBP and to assist with the course project.

Evidence-Based Practice in Nursing


Evidence-based practice or EBP, is a process "which involves defining a clinical situation of interest, formatting a good clinical question, conducting a literature search (i.e. finding the evidence), reading and critiquing research findings or published research reports (or both) and deciding if the 'evidence' warrants a change in practice" (Godshall, 2015, p.xii). 

Understanding how to find credible research that provides evidence pertaining to the clinical situation is vital. Click on the electronic books and articles below if you'd like to read and learn more.
