Evidence-based Practice Competence in Nursing: A Concept Analysis
Evidence-based practice competence in nursing is important to ensure the quality of care and the safety of patients. A clear EBP competence is needed to gain knowledge of EBP competence in Nursing. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the concept of EBP competence and explore how EBP competence has been defined in Nursing. The eight steps of the Walker and Avant model (2011) for concept analysis were used to define the concept of EBP competence in Nursing. A definition of EBP competence in Nursing was developed.
