The repeated measure ANOVA was used for analyzing the effectiveness of the EBP course. Results: Participants in the intervention group had higher scores on knowledge (p< .01), attitude (p< .01), and implement confidence (p< .05) of EBP than those in the control group. Conclusion: The course effectively enhanced EBP knowledge, attitude and implement confidence of RN-BSN students. This illustrates the positive effects of this EBP course. The results can be used by nursing leaders in health care organizations to educate and engage nurses in EBP initiatives and research utilization.
