In nursing, evidence-based practice (EBP) is a blend of research findings, clinical skills, and patient choices (Skaggs et al., 2018). In clinical practice, nurses are pushed to adopt this problem-solving strategy to deliver individualized patient care. EBP includes information on evidence-based practices in practically all areas of nursing, such as direct patient care, workflow concerns, infection control, supply management, charting, and central line care, to name a few. EBP enables nurses to utilize the most recent research methods in real-world settings, such as direct patient care. With the nurse’s extensive knowledge and data on quality improvement, potential improvements to current processes that may result in better outcomes can be considered. EBP can improve patient care by focusing on known results. In a fast-paced industry like healthcare, it is crucial to remain current with the most recent research methodology.
Journals subject to peer review are one of the most reliable sources of evidence-based research. In reality, peer-reviewed publications are the most reputable source of study findings. They are the settings where researchers evaluate the efficacy of drugs, therapies, and behaviors and publish their findings (Schmidt & Brown, 2017). Peer-reviewed sources are those that have been evaluated for quality by experts and professionals in accordance with industry standards. Unlike many websites, peer-reviewed materials are examined prior to publication. This shows that the library’s collections are a more reliable source of information than the Internet. PubMed and CINAHL are two important evidence-based research tools. PubMed is a database of articles and papers covering a broad spectrum of biological and clinical research. Evidence-Based Practice is an advanced search option in CINAHL that restricts search results to articles from evidence-based journals, articles about evidence-based practice, articles about applying evidence-based practice to research, and research articles, including systematic reviews, clinical trials, and meta-analyses.

Evidence-based practice illustrates the difference between on-the-job experience and research-based assessment and interventions that are done daily. The importance of EBP will stop healthcare professionals from providing care that is ritualistic and traditional. EBP can also determine the efficacy of the care provided and evaluate the care to ensure positive patient outcomes (Tappen,.R.M. 2015). One of the worst mindsets to have is “that is how we have always done it” or “we have never done it that way before”.
The most reliable evidence-based sources are peer-reviewed sources. Peer-reviewed sources have been reviewed by experts and professionals before they are published. Databases such as Credo, DynaMed, CINAHL, and ProQuest are all guaranteed to meet the highest quality standard.

I had no intention of contributing to the authoring of research articles for journal publication. However, the concept has long intrigued me. After participating in this program, I discovered that anything is achievable with the correct tools and education. Of course, I’m more prepared now, and I don’t consider it absurd or impossible to achieve. On the contrary, if tempted, I will undoubtedly submit a proposal. To get a competitive advantage, I would need to hone a few skills, but I am confident that with a little practice, I will be able to take that step that no longer looks so terrible or far away. Nursing is a dynamic profession that always presents new challenges. Nurses, as the largest population of healthcare workers, are better positioned to conduct evidence-based research in order to generate evidence-based interventions and solutions to nursing challenges (Sin & Bliquez, 2017).
Throughout the course, I learned a variety of things about writing a research proposal and a research report. A thorough research proposal, for example, should comprise a title, abstract, research context, research questions, research methodologies, research importance, and bibliography (University of Birmingham, 2021). Notably, the proposal should include the essential aims and questions that will lead the research. A description of the research techniques, including how you intend to conduct your study, should be included in the proposal. Fieldwork, interviews, and visits to certain libraries or archives could all be part of your strategy. Furthermore, the proposal should emphasize the distinctiveness of the research that the researcher proposes to do. As a result, the researcher should explain why their research is significant, such as how it builds on and adds to the present level of knowledge in the field or why it is timely to research their proposed topic.

Good afternoon Dr. Wright and class,
These past seven weeks have provided me with the foundation of gathering research to be able to submit for a proposal. I am confident enough that I would be able to submit a solid research proposal in my future if the opportunity should present itself. I believe that nursing is a profession where you never stop learning but you keep evolving and adapting to the most up to date changes and practices that arise. Concerns that I have still are the revision portion and the intimidation of my research being sent back multiple times extending the process. Although I know the review process is most beneficial to add substance and feedback, the waiting period and the unknown of what will be is still my point of concern.
