Based on staff nurse input, an evidence-based practice (EBP) independent study packet augmented by one-on-one mentoring was developed to support nurses in EBP activities and utilization. The strategies for developing the packet to meet American Nurses Credentialing Center requirements for continuing education credit are discussed, including re-view by a content expert and piloting of the packet prior to implementation. Evaluation of the independent study pilot project and plans for educational support for continuing development of EBP knowledge and skills are described.
