[Clinical Session Presentation] Purpose: It is believed that clinicians whose practice is based on evidence from applied research will provide better care than those who rely on their own experience. Therefore, the professional standpoint is that nurses should base their clinical decision making on sound evidence. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the knowledge and attitudes of academic nurses in postgraduate training programs towards evidence-based practice (EBP).  Methods: The study included a convenience sample of 188 graduate nurses attending postgraduate programs. A self-reported questionnaire was developed, which contained demographic data and items related to their level of knowledge of EBP, the utilization of nursing information resources during work shifts and leisure time, the feelings of confidence in clinical decision making based on available reported research findings, and the support of EBP on the part of healthcare managers. Results: 167 nurses completed the questionnaires. The majority reported using Google and Medline, and fewer used Cochrane. They retrieved data from the Internet to support their clinical decisions during their shifts as well as in their leisure time (rp=.441, p=.000). Their attitude and their training to evaluate research correlated significantly with their confidence in the validity of the research (rp=.635, p=.000). Conclusion: Nurses reported extensive utilization of both traditional and modern technological sources of information. They have a positive attitude towards their confidence in knowing how to properly evaluate research. The results of this survey support the training of nurses to develop skills in order to implement EBP at all levels of graduate training.
