Abstract

Nursing is an information-intensive profession, requiring nurses to have high information literacy and the skills to find, understand, evaluate, and use information from a multitude of sources. The advanced practice RN (APRN) is a valuable resource to support and guide nurses in this effort. The APRN’s skills encompass understanding and implementing evidence-based practice, evaluating the organizational structure (eg, units, facilities, multisystem organizations) across the continuum of care, and facilitating collaboration between perioperative nurses and other interprofessional team members to sustain practice changes in the clinical setting. Perioperative APRNs play an important role as evidence-based practice experts to assist with translating research and evidence into clinical practice for safe, quality care in the perioperative setting.
