Great book.I really enjoyed this book. It is written clearly and is an easy read considering the topic. It will stay with me the rest of my nursing career.”—Teresa R.

Best EBP book for nursing!This is an excellent book for clinicians in practice or undergraduate nursing program. The ancillaries that accompany the text are incredible… I found the podcasts with world leaders in EBP to be engaging and real, bringing their perspective to life. The book really filled a gap in knowledge about EBP…”—Amazon Reviewer
