This Book Evidence-Based Practice for Nurses is written by Nola A. Schmidt and Janet M. Brown. We are very pleased to offer the Fourth Edition of this text. For this review, we extensively modified the “Apply what you’ve learned” feature. The new topic is adherence to hand hygiene, which changed from medication errors in the last edition. We selected this clinical issue because it involves all healthcare providers in all settings and has a significant impact on patient outcomes. Additionally, nursing educators are well positioned to help students appreciate hand hygiene guidelines and develop good hand hygiene habits. This feature continues to be developed in a way that integrates the chapter content with each step of the EBP process. Concrete strategies, in the form of examples and checklists, enable readers to master the skills necessary to perform these activities in the clinical setting.
We are even more committed to the premise that baccalaureate-ready nurses, given the emphasis on leadership, critical thinking, and communication in their curricula, are ideally positioned to promote best practices. Therefore, nursing faculty must teach students educational strategies that develop a lifelong commitment to critically examine nursing practice in light of scientific advances.
