BELOW IS RESOUCE INFORMATION TO HELP COMPLETE THE ASSIGNMENT

An important competency of an advanced practice nurse is to engage in scholarship. Nursing practice should not be based solely on opinions or past practices but on the results of scientific evidence. The master’s- prepared advanced practice nurse is expected to integrate prior and current evidence-based knowledge, skills, and attitudes and apply them to practice. The master’s-prepared advance practice nurse is also expected to analyze gaps in knowledge or evidence, formulate research questions, and implement solutions for improving practice in one’s specialty area (National League for Nursing [NLN], 2010). This week, we will define scholarship and evidence-based practice, consider an area of interest, activate a spirit of inquiry, discuss a systematic method for conducting an evidence-based project, and describe the importance of knowledge dissemination.
