Abstract

Several countries have developed policy initiatives that require health care to be evidence based and health science students to study under an evidence-based curriculum as well as learn how to practice in an evidence-based way. Evidence-based nursing (EBN) is too new to have any actual research on which to base a curriculum. However, in the absence of evidence, several schools of nursing have moved or are moving forward. This article presents ideas and examples gleaned from colleagues around the world on the why's and how's of teaching EBN. Finally, this article calls for the funding and planning of an evaluation of evidence-based curricula and teaching strategies for continued development of the field.
