Abstract

Nurse educators face many challenges in the current healthcare environment. Educational methods, philosophies, and the content of curricula need to be reexamined to meet the needs of professional nurses who will practice in the next millennium. Evidence-based nursing is one approach that may enable future healthcare providers to manage the explosion of new literature and technology and ultimately may result in improved patient outcomes. The authors provide an introduction to evidence-based nursing as well as a description of the process in two separate undergraduate nursing programs.
