[Leadership Session Presentation] Innovative learning approaches that engage undergraduate nursing students in the practice of decision-making skills critical for the practice of evidence-based nursing in the ?real world? are needed. Nursing students at the University of North Florida School of Nursing participate in a capstone project in their last semester prior to graduation. The project is a culmination of experiential learning about evidence-based practice that evolves over the course of their nursing program, through classroom and clinical study. Using a simulated ?hands on? approach, students participate as a ?committee member? in an abbreviated review process in which they sample types of evidence related to a selected clinical question. The seminar approach is highly interactive with faculty serving in a consultant role guiding students through the use of selected evidence-based nursing models. Each class is a working session with students methodically using a step by step approach in their appraisal and investigation of examples of evidence. Through this process, students quickly gain appreciation for the facilitators and barriers to evidence-based practice and the challenges inherent in making best practice decisions. Students overwhelmingly respond positively to the ?hands on? approach. Post-course evaluations demonstrate that students quickly take ownership of their projects and report that they are more prepared to participate in making evidence-based decisions.
