[Leadership session research presentation] BACKGROUND: The Institute of Medicine report, Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century states that more stress on teaching evidence based practice (EBP) is necessary to achieve targeted improvements. The Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing embraces this recommendation and requires nursing students to complete an EBP project within the undergraduate nursing research course. To assure the applicability to nursing practice and experience with unit based EBP questions, students are linked with nursing staff that have specific EBP questions. The Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-based Practice Model, a collaborative effort between hospital and academic faculty, is used in this research course. Students select a clinical EBP question from the hospital and collaborate with nursing staff.  Students submit the completed recommendations to the nursing unit to complete the EBP process. RESEARCH QUESTIONS: Do undergraduate nursing students perceive the utilization of an Evidence-Based Practice Project model helpful to examine clinical problems?  Does the use of an EBP model in undergraduate nursing student projects promote an understanding of the nurse's involvement in the organizational and clinical decision making processes within health care facilities?  Are students satisfied with the EBP process and outcome?   METHODS: The EBP Project Evaluation Instrument, a one page survey, was administered. The survey responses are anonymous and no identifiable personal information is requested. Data are aggregated and comments transcribed. RESULTS: The response rate for the nursing students' evaluation of the EBP process and outcome was 92% (262/283). Overall, 79% were somewhat/very satisfied with the process and 82% were somewhat/very satisfied the outcome. Qualitative results support the quantitative data. This collaborative effort enhances hospital EBP efforts and provides a very practical experience for nursing students.
