The profession of nursing endorses EBP as a means to ensure high quality care, yet many practicing nurses do not have the necessary tools. Faculty must prepare students to make evidence-based decisions in clinical practice. Our previous course had a traditional research focus. EBP was integrated in other courses. Students did not develop workable EBP skills. Student feedback indicated a lack of understanding of the relationship of research to practice, little confidence in appraising the literature and applying it to the clinical setting. This project presents the integration of EBP throughout an accelerated BSN curriculum. Evidence based practice is introduced as a foundation of nursing care. In the first semester, students focus on a "never event", develop a clinical question, review and appraise the literature. Students develop an abstract and present a poster, at an event sponsored by clinical partners. In the next semester, students partner with clinical staff to implement and evaluate their EBP projects. In the final semester, students bring the project into the public health setting. Students present projects at conferences and publish. Students cite the connection of research to practice. Clinical partners highlight the student contributions to EBP, and possessing tools that are desirable. Brown, C.E., Kim, S.C., Stichler, J.F., & Fields, W. (2010).
