COURSE DESCRIPTION
The purpose of this course is to examine the processes required to translate and integrate
evidence into nursing practice. Emphasis is on evaluation and application of scientific evidence
affecting nurse-sensitive quality indicators. Focus is on an understanding of the ways in which
cumulative interprofessional data sets are used.
COURSE OBJECTIVES
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:
1. Explain the significance of using theories and conceptual frameworks in research.
2. Identify processes of inquiry relevant to provision of evidence based healthcare by
members of the interprofessional team.
3. Demonstrate an understanding of the basic elements of the research process and models
for applying evidence to clinical practice.
4. Identify credible sources of evidence pertinent to clinical practice.
COURSE OBJECTIVES (continued):
5. Identify nurse-sensitive quality indicators and performance measures.
6. Analyze discrepancies between evidence based standards of care and common practices
that impact client outcomes.
7. Discuss legal and ethical issues pertinent to the acquisition of scientific evidence.

ATTENDANCE
Students are expected to be present for all scheduled classes, other learning experiences, and
examinations. Students who have extraordinary circumstances preventing attendance should
explain these circumstances to the course instructor prior to the scheduled class or as soon as
possible thereafter. Instructors will then make an effort to accommodate reasonable requests. A
grade penalty may be assigned for late assignments, including tests. There will be no make-ups
for missed quizzes. Make-up exams for the tests will be given only under extenuating
circumstances that could not have been predicted ahead of time and the format will be essay
questions.
ACCOMMODATIONS DUE TO DISABILITY
Each semester, students are responsible for requesting a memorandum from the Disability
Resource Center to notify faculty of their requested individual accommodations. This should be
done at the start of the semester.
COUNSELING AND STUDENT HEALTH
Students may occasionally have personal issues that arise on the course of pursuing higher
education or that may interfere with their academic performance. If you find yourself facing
problems affecting your coursework, you are encouraged to talk with an instructor and to seek
confidential assistance at the University of Florida Counseling Center, 352-392-1575, or Student
