Evidence-based practice (EBP) is a way to change healthcare practice worldwide. Systematic research in the relevant literature was conducted using the Medline, CINAHL, and Web of Science from 2005 until October 2015. Five studies were included in the review. Five primary quantitative research studies on integrating learning strategies and its effect on nursing student’s knowledge and attitudes. Four studies were a quasi-experimental studies and one was a cross-sectional study. This review supports that different EBP learning strategies improved nursing students’ knowledge towards the use of EBP. However, the effect of different learning strategies on nursing students’ attitudes requires further studies.
