The current nursing staff, who will be serving as preceptors in a HRSA funded Nurse Residency Program, need to be knowledgeable consumers of evidence based practice research and current resources to guide both their own practice and those new nurse residents in a Nurse Residency Program. The following program was designed to support the use of evidence based literature in the clinical decision making role of the staff nurse. It features the collaboration between the nursing faculty, library staff, and nursing staff practicing in a rural medical center and critical access hospital. Purpose:  Practicing RNs in either the preceptor or nurse resident role will function at the at the novice level in finding literature that supports their practice. The preceptor course and residency course for the new HRSA funded Nurse Residency Program offers a hands- on and mentored information retrieval and database searching session. All RNs, both preceptors and residents, regardless of their years of nursing practice complete either an online or small group session  They are guided in exploring the evidence for a clinical question using the following tools: UpToDate Online - Ovid database searching techniques Internet based pharmacology sites; Personal Digital Assistant - practice with E-books diseases, laboratory data, and drugs; and Current library periodicals pertaining to their practice ? especially evidence based journals in print. The program will be described with attention paid to  course evaluations and practice findings related to the use of evidence based concepts and principles. Course focus areas included; Ventilator Associated Pneumonia, post-op wound care and the national ?Saving 100,000 Lives Initiative.?
