et al. First Published : November-December 2008 Introduction The department of nursing is evaluating nursing student’s capability of appraising scientific articles using evidence based teaching methods. These articles reveal three stages of teaching how to appraise scientific articles. For instance, there is the formulation of a question, searching for relevant evidences, and significant appraisal of the evidence (Oermann, 2007). The synopsis The nursing department applies the three steps by giving the students two scientific articles to evaluate. The students are organized into discussion groups. In addition, they discuss the articles with their lectures. Finally, both the students’ discussions and the examination results reports, recommend that method of appraising scientific articles (Smith-Strom & Nortyedt, 2008). Consequently, Smith-strom argues that, this discovery improves the student’s attitude towards apprising scientific articles thus the critical appraisal of articles. Sewell, a specialist in computers, informatics, nursing (CIN), conducts research on the impacts of the decision process, based on evidence. He researches whether the decision can improve the passing rates of national council licensure examinations in the Bachelor of Science nursing option (Engelmann, et al., 2008). These articles, further indicates that, the processes can also apply in other nursing sections irrespective of their mission and the number of students (Mastrian, 2011). In his article, he also examines the key components that significantly contribute to success in nursing programme. The article also discovers new lessons and opportunities for detailed assessment methods. These articles explore the way of achieving excellence in nursing education (Gaberson, 2009).They also provide that the key features of excellence in nursing offer a strong foundation for an outstanding performance thus excellent services. These features guide nursing education programs for their self-actualization. Additionally, such foundations’ features translate to the nature of candidates, the type of the faculty, assured improvement in quality, and curriculum teaching and evaluation strategies (Sewell, Culpa-Bondal & Colvin, 2008). A sample of a research question about the evidence based programs and teaching is shown below. Is there a need for a change in diagnosis and care planning? The research design Collect internal data about diagnosis and care planning then compare with an external data. Connect the problem with intrusion and outcomes using Nursing Intervention Classification (NIC) and Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC). Create the best verification by a text review and vital appraisal of accessible research in diagnosis and care planning. Merge the research evaluation results with qualitative statistics, medical finding, and contextual data. Evaluate system feasibility; consider patient benefits and threats of implementing diagnosis care. Devise a change in the current diagnosis practices. Lastly apply and maintain the change in the diagnosis care practice. The research setting Five experimental assessments are conducted in four nursing centers. The project starts in 2012, which gives a good context for the research. The researchers, the nurses, the patients, and the agencies that deal with nursing services perform the experiments. The research starts with the assessment of one of the nursing schools. In addition, similar assessments occur in other nursing schools.
