Florence Nightingale, who pioneered the use of research in practise in nursing, has a long history of doing so. Although few nurses contributed to Nightingale's foundation in the early and mid-nineteenth centuries, the nursing profession has recently offered important leadership for enhancing care through the implementation of best clinical research evidences in practise. Evidence-based practise (EBP) is the careful and deliberate application of current best evidence, clinical skill, and patient values to inform health-care decisions. Expansion of scientific knowledge, highly educated customers, and nurses in clinical settings, relentless pursuit of cost-effectiveness, and accreditation expectations, among other factors, are all contributing to the increased focus on EBP. Ask, Acquire, Appraise, Apply, and Assess/Re Assess are the steps for adopting EBP. CINAHL, MEDLINE: (PubMed), and Evidence-based clinical practise guidelines, to name a few, are some of the tools that can be used to find the best evidence for practise. Empirical data from meta analyses and randomised controlled trials; evidence from other scientific approaches like descriptive and qualitative research; and usage of information from case reports, scientific principles, and expert opinion are all examples of best evidence. When enough research evidence is available, clinical experience and patient values should be used to guide practise. The ability to apply evidence in practise requires enough information, attitude, skill, and support. In order to apply EBP in clinical settings and provide high-quality nursing care, numerous professional and individual barriers must be addressed1.
