Abstract

Introduction:In regard to the importance of nursing studentschr('39') attitudes toward EBP and using it in their professional future as well as the emphasis on educational planning for students, this study aimed to evaluate the attitude of senior nursing students toward evidence-based practice.

Method:The present study was a descriptive- analytical cross-sectional study conducted in Kerman School of Nursing and Midwifery in 2014. Data were collected through the Persian version of a standard questionnaire of knowledge, attitude and practice of undergraduate nursing students about evidence-based practice. Sampling was conducted through the census method and 43 senior nursing students participated in the study. Data analysis was done through SPSS20 software.

Results:According to the obtained scores, students showed a moderate attitude (2.80 ±1.11) toward evidence-based practice. The highest mean score was related to the item saying that EBP should be a part of the nursing curriculum (3.10±1.13). Studentschr('39') attitudes toward EBP had significant relationship with the rate of course satisfaction, participation in research activities such as diagnosing issues for research, cooperation in research projects, evaluation of research reports and the method and rate of access to evidences (P<0.05).

Conclusion: Although studentschr('39') attitude toward evidence-based practice was moderate, but appropriate educational planning and modifying nursing curriculum, are efficient steps for promotion of evidence- based practice.
