Purpose: Information technology has greatly enhanced nurses' access to evidence based practice information yet little is known regarding nurses' utilization of existing evidence based practice resources. This study assessed nurses' current sources of information, perceived value of current resources, and perceived need for additional information to enhance evidence-based practice implementation. In addition, the responses of clinical nurse specialists and nurse managers were compared to determine if differences existed in these areas. Conceptual Framework: Diffusion of Innovations (E. Rogers) Sample: A convenience sample of nurses was obtained through professional list serves. 157 volunteered to participate, 112 subsequently completed the survey. Method: Anonymous on-line survey. Results: Ninety percent reported use of the Internet to access evidence-based practice information. Overall the respondents do not place a high value on the current internet resources for evidence-based practice and perceived a need for additional types of information on the internet such as, best practices, outcome measures, sources for guidelines, tools and strategies for implementation, and benchmarking data. Clinical nurse specialists and nurse administrators showed statistically significant differences in their utilization of evidence-based practice information in several areas.
