Commitment to educate nurses is central to the building of an evidence-based practice (EBP) culture. Rochester General Hospital?s Department of Nursing Research assumed a leadership role for addressing the EBP learning needs of nurses at all levels of practice. This educational endeavor involved: (1) development of the nursing research facilitator role; (2) education for nursing leadership on the EBP process, expectations and resources; (3) development of a library resource structure to support EBP; (4) implementation of a nursing EBP policy; and (5) establishment of two EBP committees -  a nursing EBP steering committee, and a hospital-wide EBP Unit liaison committee.  Multiple educational strategies and opportunities are used to address the evidence-based practice learning needs of staff nurses. These included: The EBP Unit Liaison Committee members? monthly attendance at evidence-based practice educational presentations; Individual consultations for conducting EBP reviews; and Establishment of an annual hospital-wide nursing educational goal for EBP. In 2005, the goal was for every clinical unit to present an EBP poster that identified the strength of the evidence of the literature used for the unit poster. Four EBP - self -learning modules are available on the EBP web site. Included is Presentation of six formal, customized 8-hour EBP Educational Days in 2005; Orientation of all new nurses to the importance our EBP culture; and Unit based teaching regarding EBP is available upon request. The expectation that every nurse completes one critical literature review for at least one article pertinent to her clinical area. The presentation will provide specific details on our educational activities in 2005. Multiple outcomes demonstrate the success of this evidence-based practice education. For example, thus far, in 2005, a total of 37 practice changes have resulted from EBP reviews.
