Evidence-Based Nursing

Evidence-Based Nursing and Research - what's the difference?

Although you may hear these two terms used interchangeably they are not the same thing.  Evidence-Based Nursing is based on research.  Research provides the evidence for Evidence-Based Nursing.  To practice Evidence-Based Nursing, nurses use the evidence (often in the form of journal articles) to guide their practice.
