[Evidence-based Practice Session Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this program is to equipped bedside nurses with skills, tools and resources in order for them to elevate nursing care and become leaders at the bedside. Methods: A Transdisciplinary team was convened to develop professional nurse development program. The team was charge to increase nurse's enthusiasm in their profession and reinvigorate the practice environment. The team consists of a clinical nurse educator, a manager, five performance improvement quality managers, a performance improvement coordinator and a librarian. The course curriculum of the program includes Resource Utilization, Evidence-based Practice (EBP), Performance Improvement, Literature Search, Abstract Writing, Poster Presentation and Presentation Skills Practice. The team also collaborated with the institution?s housewide Performance Improvement Council to gain support and disseminate communication of the program.  This one-day program is presented monthly. The class limit is 10 attendees per session due to the computer room availability in the institution. Plan for a monthly follow-up is in place to meet with nurses who completed the program and mentor them on how to do the PI project. Staff that completed the program were given a certificate of excellence after the class and were encouraged to lead a team to do an EBP-PI Project relevant to their unit's need. Results: Currently, three workshop presentations were just completed. Thirty eight (38) nurses completed the program. Monthly follow-up is on-going to assist nurses with their projects. The program was given a positive feedback from the magnet surveyors during their visit to the institution who is applying for redesignation. Conclusion: When nurses are provided with the tools and skills they need, it rekindles their passion for nursing and makes practice more enjoyable once again. The combined impact on patient care and staff satisfaction make this educational program relevant in promoting patient safety and improving clinical quality.
