In an article by Ross, Noone, Luce, and Sideras (2009
) published in last month’s issue of the Journal of Nursing Education
, a series of seven learning activities were described that focused on development of evidence-based practice (EBP) and outcomes management knowledge and skills throughout an undergraduate nursing curriculum. These seven learning activities spiral in increased complexity while building on previously acquired skills. This Syllabus Selection article presents the initial learning activity, which focuses on developing foundational skills for locating, evaluating, and referencing sources of evidence.
