. Abstract: Evidence-based practice (EBP) competencies represent essential components of nursing education at all levels. The transition of EBP learning goals from the baccalaureate to the Master of Science in nursing and Doctor of Nursing Practice levels provides a blueprint for the development and advancement of student knowledge, skills, and attitudes. The purpose of this article is to describe 3 nursing curricula related to EBP competencies at the baccalaureate, master’s, and Doctor of Nursing Practice levels (Hande, Williams, Robbins, & Christenbery, 2017).

. Abstract: Evidence-based practice (EBP) is defined as “the conscientious use of current best evidence in making clinical decisions about patient care.” This paper describes how we have developed the evidence-based practice concept and integrated it into two courses at two different levels of the BSN curriculum. Students apply EBP knowledge and process by using the PICO clinical question (Population, Intervention, Comparison and Outcome), whereby they observe a selected clinical skill, and then compare their observations to hospital protocol and against the latest evidence-based practice guidelines. The assignment for the second course requires students to pick a more complex clinical skill and to support proposed changes in practice with scholarly literature. Assessment of student learning and course evaluation has shown that the overall experience of integrating EBP projects into the curriculum is fruitful for students, clinical agencies, and faculty (Sukkarieh-Haraty & Hoffart, 2017).

. Abstract: An estimated 250,000 deaths occur annually are attributed to preventable medical errors. Approximately 100,000 of those deaths are related to miscommunication between healthcare providers. Miscommunication between healthcare providers during the transfer of care accounts for 80% of sentinel events occurring in the hospital setting. The hand-off communication continues to be one of the primary causes of sentinel events in healthcare in spite of the continued research focus over the past 10 years. The transfer of care communication between providers is called the “hand-off,” “change of shift report,” or “handover.” The hand-off for purposes of this study is defined as the process of transferring patient care, responsibility, and authority from one nurse to another at the change of shift. Specifically, we are concerned about the communication of clinical events (CE) experienced by the patient because CEs are precursors to a sentinel event. A CE is defined as a change in the patient’s condition in the following areas: bleeding, pain, fever, and changes in output, respiratory status, or level of consciousness (Galatzan, 2019).
