Problem: The rate of translation of research evidence into practice has been reported to average 17 years. Multiple barriers to translating nursing evidence into practice have been identified. One area understudied is nurses' self-efficacy related to translating evidence into practice. Conceptual Framework: Self-efficacy theory posits that self-efficacy predicts performance. Thus, targeting evidence-based practice (EBP) self-efficacy could serve to expedite the translation process. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine preliminary evidence of the reliability and validity of the researcher developed 17-item EBP Self-Efficacy Scale. Design: Quasi-experimental with a two phased approach involving establishment of content validity and testing the scale using descriptive and inferential statistics. Sample: Registered nurses (1/4 staff, 3/4 leaders) from 14 different healthcare settings (hospital, ambulatory, long-term care and hospice) participated in a formal one-year educational program involving content and application in clinical informatics and EBP. Participants completed the EBPSE Self-Efficacy (EBPSE) Scale at baseline (Time 1), midway through the program after clinical informatics content was delivered (Time 2), and upon program completion after EBP content was delivered (Time 3). Results: Content validity was established by drawing items from published EBP models and developing and revising scale items through an expert panel. 94 participants (93% female) from two cohorts (Cohort 1, 2007, n = 53; Cohort 2, 2008, n = 41) completed the EBPSE Scale. Cronbach's alpha coefficients for the scale were above .90 for each cohort at baseline and at the three different time points for Cohort 1. Average baseline EBPSE Scale score (range 1-100) was 70.85 (SD=18.83, n=47) for Cohort 1 and 70.74 (SD=18.10, n=38) for Cohort 2 (p=.98). Average total scores for Cohort 1 increased significantly (p<.01) from Time 1 (M=70.85; 18.83) to Time 2 (M=81.45; SD=15.74) and Time 3 (M=90.92; SD=7.51). Scale item averages also increased significantly over time. Conclusions: Findings from this study hold promise for the EBPSE Scale as a measure of EBP self-efficacy and target for practice changes. Future research will include a larger sample and factor analytic techniques.
