NURS 350 Week 1 Discussion Post How does the focus of research and evidence-based practice (EBP) differ? Discuss the application of research findings into evidence-based nursing practice. Provide an example. According to our book evidenced based practice involves three common components which are research-based information, clinical expertise and patient preferences (Schmidt & Brown, 2018). When we are conducting research, we are generally doing this so generate new knowledge or to validate existing knowledge. When we perform research, we investigate and explore topics in order to consider something reliable. We as nurses like to fall back on our own personal experiences and we need to use more evidenced-based practice so that we do not become biased or use or traditions to influence us. We as nurses rely heavily on our intuition as well to guide us in this field and this can be both good and bad. According to our textbook, intuition is considered to be part of evidence and it is defined as, "quick perception of truth without conscious attention or reasoning."(Schmidt & Brown, 2018).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
