Use, knowledge, and attitudes toward evidence-based practice among nursing staff.

Little information is known about the use, knowledge, and attitudes toward evidence-based practice (EBP) among nurses in a large academic hospital. This cross-sectional, descriptive study examined the knowledge, attitudes, and use of EBP by nurses at a large academic, Magnet(®)-designated medical center.
Data were collected from 593 nurses who completed the Clinical Effectiveness and Evidence Based Practice Questionnaire between November 2011 and March 2012. Statistical analyses included correlations and multivariate analysis of covariance.
Most nurses (96%) reported that they were aware that an EBP and Research Council existed. The average scores were highest on the Attitudes subscale, followed by the Knowledge/Skills and Practice subscales.
Continuing education for nurses makes a difference in nurses' attitudes, knowledge, and use of EBP in practice. Participation in EBP and research educational activities or Council meetings may affect EBP culture in a large academic medical center.
