NP Student Evidence Based Practice Poster Presentation Time: 11:30am - 1:30pm Location: 525 North Wolfe Street, Baltimore MD Details:
The NP student Evidence-Based Practice Poster presentation will demonstrate the culture of inquiry integral to nurse practitioner practice. The posters will represent the culmination of each individual student's pursuit of the best evidence available regarding a clinical practice problem for the purpose of improving patient care and clinical outcomes. The poster reflects and builds upon the student’s “burning clinical question” developed in previous courses and clinical practice, and is informed by the evidence based review of the literature that evaluated the strength and implications of the literature explored by the student.
