By 2020, most clinical decisions should be supported by best evidence. Therefore, nurses need institutional support and education about evidence-based practice (EBP) and research. The aim of this study was to describe nurses' self-assessed knowledge of EBP and research. Findings revealed nurses' knowledge of EBP and research ranged from no knowledge to high knowledge with opportunities for education. Providing for the use of best evidence is a dynamic process involving clinicians, educators, and administrators.
