Nursing Research and Evidence Based Practice Council

The UC San Diego Nursing Research and Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Council exists to ignite the spirit of inquiry and create, nurture, and sustain a culture of nursing practice based on evidence.

We endeavor to improve patient outcomes by promoting, facilitating, and conducting nursing research studies, as well as develop evidence-based nursing practice changes that assure quality patient outcomes and cost effective patient care. Every staff nurse will understand evidence-based nursing practice concepts and recognize the practical application in the clinical setting.

The Nursing Research an EBP Council is a part of the UC San Diego Nursing Shared Governance structure. The council provides support to all councils and committees within the department of nursing and shared governance structure.
