Evidence-based Practice (EBP) in Nursing Administration
Evidence-based practice in nursing is an integration of research evidence, clinical expertise and a patient's preferences. This problem-solving approach to clinical practice encourages nurses to provide individualized patient care.

EBP enables nurses to evaluate research so they understand the risks or effectiveness of a diagnostic test or treatments. Its application enables nurses to include patients in their care plan which allows them to become proactive in their own healthcare since they can voice concerns, share their values and preferences and make suggestions on how they want to proceed.
