Description This course is grounded in the translation of current evidence into best practice. The research process links nursing theory with clinical nursing practice for application within the larger healthcare system. Emphasis is placed on preparing students to retrieve, read and comprehend published research reports. A systematic approach to appraisal of research evidence is emphasized as a means of informing nurses’ clinical decision making and is incorporated into a research critique. Students develop an evidence based practice project as well as explore evidence-based practice models to facilitate implementation and dissemination.
