Abstract

The concept of evidence-based practice has gained increased attention throughout the 1990s as a strategy for linking the best scientific findings with clinical judgment to improve health outcomes. Because the concept implies finding, evaluating, summarizing, and using research results, a high level of clinical reasoning skills is required. Effective evidence-based practice also requires the incorporation of new practices into clinical and organizational settings, thereby demanding advanced leadership skills. Competencies in clinical reasoning, leadership, and clinical practice are critical for advanced practice nurses. This article describes a master's-level curriculum supportive of evidence-based practice and includes recommendations for developing curricula of this type.
