Evidence-based practice (EBP) is essential for quality health care, and EBP knowledge needs to be increased among nurses. Web-based courses may effectively deliver such education. In this study, data were collected about the Oncology Nursing Society web course “Developing Skills for Evidence-Based Practice” and evaluated for demographic characteristics and EBP knowledge test scores.

At a Glance

  • No significant correlation was seen between knowledge test scores and participants’ education or experience levels.
  • Course participants had significant improvement on knowledge test scores after web course completion.
  • Additional studies are needed to explore the impact of EBP knowledge on clinical practice.
