Inside the program: Models of evidence-based nursing practice

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, May 14, 2010

No one model of evidence-based practice (EBP) is a perfect fit for all nursing departments and evidence-based nursing efforts. If your organization does not already have an established nursing EBP group, the first step in choosing a model is to form a representation group of nurses to review and evaluate existing EBP models and determine which would be the best fit for your organization.

Below are a few models that have been described in the literature:

  • The Academic Center for Evidence-Based Nursing (ACE) Star Model of Knowledge Transformation®
  • The University of Colorado’s Evidence-Based Multidisciplinary Clinical Practice Model (Goode & Piedalue 1999)
  • Rosswurm and Larrabee’s Model for Change to Evidence-Based Practice (Rosswurm & Larrabee 1999)
  • The Iowa Model of Evidence-Based Practice
  • Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-Based Practice Model and Guidelines
