Appendix B
Nursing 314
Evidence Based Practice (EBP) Clinical Paper

1. The purpose of this exercise is for students to have the opportunity to see in the clinical setting how hospital RN’s relate to EBP interventions in their practice and then compare with research supported literature the practice intervention chosen.
2. Learn how to conduct EBP research and find EBP guidelines.
3. Write observations and express ideas in APA format.

Observation, oral communication skills (interview), EBP research, and written communication skills using logic and critical thinking.

1. Identify a staff RN with whom you have worked in a clinical setting.
2. Explain to the RN that you would like to complete an assignment by observing him/her performing a nursing practice intervention then asking a few questions about how and why it was performed that way – note that individual RNs will not be identified in class discussions, only observation and interview themes.
3. Observe the RN performing a discrete intervention (e.g. changing a dressing, educating a patient on a specific module, assessing one or more vital signs). Students are encouraged to NOT make medication administration a focus of this activity.
4. As soon as possible after the observation, ask the RN the questions listed in the boxes below. Be sure to be non-judgmental and thank the RN for assisting you with this activity. Please write your answers in complete sentences with explanations. A yes or no answer will not receive credit.
