What is Evidence-Based Nursing?

Scott and McSherry (2009) reviewed many definitions of evidence-based nursing and proposed a definition of evidence-based medicine: "an ongoing process by which evidence, nursing theory and the practitioners’ clinical expertise are critically evaluated and considered, in conjunction with patient involvement, to provide delivery of optimum nursing care for the individual" (1089).
