Scott & McSherry (2008) also define evidence based nursing is a process by which nurses make clinical decisions using the best available research evidence, their clinical expertise and patient outcomes. We will also discuss nursing’s simultaneous reliance on and critique of EBP in the context of critical reasoning. There will also be discussion of a study done that examined the effects of integrating evidence based practice into clinical practicum among RN-BSN students and the limitations of evidence based practice and an alternate view of decision making. Lastly we will discuss evidence that challenges the traditional practice regarding injection sites (Cocoman & Murray 2010). According to Guem et al.

Chester Liberty University MSN Educator Track Research NURS 500 Dr. Tammy Jones June 09, 2012 ADOPTING EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE: A CRITQUE Adopting Evidence-Based Practice: A Critique Part I Comprehension Introduction The article that will be critiqued is titled “Adopting Evidence-Base Practice in Clinical Decision Making: Nurses’ Perceptions, Knowledge, And Barriers” (Majid et al., 2011, p. 229). The content of the research article does fit well with the title of the article. The title of the article is the basis for the questionnaires used to collect data for the study. The questionnaires ask in detail about perceptions,
Early efforts to study client outcomes began from quality improvement studies with nurses’ participation in the development of interdisciplinary care plans such as critical pathways and care maps that are still in use. Evidence-based practice (EBP) is using the best available evidence on hand to guide clinical decision making in order for nurses to provide the most current and best available care for their patients (Chitty & Black, 2010). EBP is a combination of knowledge to the research process, theory, clinical decision making and findings. The use of EBP requires that one must be aware of research that supports detailed and specific
This informs nurses’ practice from different types of evidence by professional expertises that collect and interpret the evidence for a valid outcome for clinical practices in supporting patients’ health and treatment. The ‘evidence’ in EBP requires a blending of research involving patient experience and clinical professions expertise as part of the evidence (Gerrish

According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s Position Statement on Defining Scholarship for the Discipline of Nursing (1999), the APN/DNP’s role of scholarship serves to benefit nursing research, teaching, education, and the practice of nursing itself. Boyer’s (1990, 1997) model identifies the processes of discovery, integration, application, and teaching that guide the continuum of scholarship for the APN. Participating in research processes and evaluating theories in practice contribute to discovery and the ways of knowing. Information is shared by writing scholarly publications, mentoring, and developing educational opportunities for nurses, such as competencies. New knowledge is applied into practice through evidence based decision making, quality improvement processes, instituting policy changes, and providing patient and community education opportunities.

Sindiswa Michel Chamberlain College of Nursing NR505: Advanced Research Methods: Evidence-Based Practice Spring A, 2014 CRITIQUE OF SYSTEMATIC RESEARCH REVIEW (SRR) 2 The nursing research problem addressed in the Systematic research Review is, To what extent do nurses use research in clinical practice? This systematic research review is relevant to nursing practice in that the nursing profession is now recognizing the importance of research as a need for quality improvement in providing nursing care to our patients. The researchers used a systematic review of RCTs. They chose experimental designs which included Random control Trials, clinical trials, and quasi-experimental studies.
Jean Watson and the Theory of Caring University of Phoenix NUR/403 Jacqueline DePaulis, MS, RN, FNP February 7, 2011 Jean Watson and the Theory of Caring Jean Watson’s theoretical approach to nursing care incorporates spiritual, humanist, and holistic aspects. The Eastern philosophical influence to her work speaks to the ideals of human morality, connectedness of all humans and to altruistic nursing care. This paper will discuss the background and concepts of Watson’s theory, as well as a nurse/patient transpersonal interaction. In the context of this interaction, the theory’s major assumptions and carative factors/caritas will be explored, as well as, a personal reflection on this transpersonal moment. The Background of Watson’s Theory Jean Watson began her career as a diploma nurse, then, graduated with her baccalaureate in nursing science in the early nineteen-sixties; she advanced, to receive her masters in psychiatric nursing within two years.
Evidence Based Nursing Practice Introduction: The evidence based clinical practices are defined as the construction of strategies in health care or nursing which is based on the medical evidences throughout the globe. The health care strategy is formed on the best possible available medical evidence which would help in integrating that particular practice with the relevant disease on ground of common characteristics, symptoms, environmental and organizational compatibility (Booth, 2008 & Newhouse, 2007). Evidence based practice has evolved the clinical decision making from the traditional slow methodology into a quick response decision making as it deals with the strategies devised from the common evidences happening around the world.
