AJN, American Journal of Nursing:
Thank you for publishing the series of step-by-step strategies to help nurses learn about evidence-based practice ("Searching for the Evidence," Evidence-Based Practice: Step by Step, May).
Staff nurses are on the front lines and help to determine whether evidence-based practice will improve patient and staff outcomes. Nurse leaders must dedicate the time and resources necessary to ensure that bedside nurses have the opportunity to research and implement this type of practice.
