The Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Fellowship is a 6-month, mentorship program in which clinical nurses develop their leadership, problem-solving, and research utilization skills. Applications for this competitive fellowship opportunity are reviewed and scored by the Research Council. Clinical nurses identify a practice issue that may be addressed/improved by applying the latest evidence into practice. The program blends clinical nurses' knowledge and expertise with classes on research and other levels of evidence, the change process, and project evaluation. The Fellows are mentored in the development, implementation and evaluation of EBP projects by a Clinical Nurse Scientist and a clinician (clinical nurse specialist, educator, or resource with expertise in the Fellow's area of practice).
