The objective

The general objective of the project is to foster and harmonize the teaching and learning of EBP in the European Nursing curricula and to produce the acquisition of EBP competence earlier in professional life that can be continued for lifelong self-directed learning also among nurse educators and clinical mentors.

Specific objectives of the project are to analyze the current situation of EBP in European Nursing Curricula, to agree on a European EBP Competency framework and to develop Guidelines on the recommendations for the teaching and learning EBP to Nursing European Curriculum.

Following the recommendations of this preliminary work we plan to develop a joint curricula and a EBP e-Toolkit (including an e-course and an open electronic resources library) with a pedagogical strategy for learning and training EBP in nursing oriented to undergraduate nursing students and professional nurses.

Finally we will validate the innovative educational intervention using EBP e-Toolkit among nursing students and educators (academic and clinical mentors).
