This Nursing Research Guide will introduce you to the sources available at McFarlin Library for conducting research in the Nursing and Allied Health field.

What is Evidence Based Practice?

"Evidence-based practice (EBP), sometimes referred to as evidence-based nursing, is a problem-solving approach to clinical care that utilizes current best evidence from well-designated  studies, a clinician’s expertise, and patient values and preferences."

(Fitzpatrick, J. J., Carpenter, R., & Smith, M. J. (2015). Encyclopedia of Nursing Education. New York, NY: Springer Publishing Company. p 144.)
