Abstract

This research described factors related to incorporating evidence-based practice for clinical decision-making by staff nurses who completed an evidence-based practice (EBP) scholars program. A phenomenological approach was used with focus groups to collect data. A semi-structured questionnaire and field notes comprised study instruments. Audio tapes were transcribed and semantic content analysis was used to code data. Programs to teach bedside nurses how to incorporate EBP into care delivery not only result in better outcomes for patients but also greatly contribute to the sustained enculturation of EBP as a foundation for nursing practice.
