Abstract

In clinical practice, nurses are expected to understand and implement the science that supports patient care, yet they fall short of goals to implement evidence in practice. One reason is difficulty in interpreting research results. Interpretation requires an ability to read and speak a language that many nurses have never mastered-the language of data. This article presents a skill-based solution for use in nursing professional development to improve nurses' understanding of statistics as a language.
