The purpose of this repeated cross-sectional study was to periodically assess perceptions of pediatric nurses' confidence, attitudes, barriers, and facilitators to research utilization and evidence-based practice as changes to the nursing research environment and a targeted curriculum were implemented. The study results were used by the nursing professional development specialist to further customize the nursing research curriculum to better meet the self-reported education and mentorship needs of the nurses.
