This research addresses questions of how to promote evidence-based nursing practice from the perspective of caring science. Objective: The objective was to increase the understanding of the meaning of evidence and caring science and thereby support the evidence-based nursing culture. The theoretical basis lies in caring science and its ethos, the fundamental ideas of which are compassion and motherliness. Design: The methodological basis lies in hermeneutics and the research design comprises deduction, induction and abduction. Population, Sample, Setting, Years: The population (N 374) was made up of nurses, ward sisters, nurse executives and those who had a master’s degree in caring science in two hospitals in Finland in 1998. Concept or Variables Studied Together or Intervention and Outcome Variables: 1. to map conceptions of barriers to and facilitators of evidence-based caring nursing and how the informants perceive caring science today, and 2. to clarify the conception of evidence. Methods: The empirical gathering of data was made by means of a questionnaire with structured and unstructured questions. The data-analysis was made by interpretation. Findings: The results show that caring science is both visible and invisible and that the greatest barriers are the lack of an academic culture and the lack of a supporting leadership. The results show a multidimensional caring science concept that has an inner caring ‘dimension’, which refers to caring evidence as truthful, beautiful and good. Conclusions and Implications: In order to promote evidence-based nursing practice we need to have the courage to cultivate a culture that is based on evidence-based caring nursing. Every leader also has the responsibility to be a mentor in nursing practice and we should together create visions based on an ethos that makes up a firm basis for evidence-based nursing.
