The Evidence-Nursing Practice Connection
This week’s graded topics relate to the following Course Outcome (CO).
- CO 1: Examine the sources of evidence that contribute to professional nursing practice. (PO 7)
- CO 5: Recognize the role of research findings in evidence-based practice. (PO 7 & 8)
Improving patient care and outcomes is paramount to the practice of nursing. As we conclude our learning journey through our world of research and evidence-based practice, it is important to reflect upon your time spent in the course:
- Think about nursing practice and describe one barrier that you feel prohibits nurses from engaging in EBP; share one strategy you could use to facilitate the use of evidence to help improve nursing care for patients.
- Reflect back over your time in the course and describe how your thinking has changed about nursing research and evidence-based practice; describe one new learning during this course that you believe was the most helpful.
