Practicum experience | NURS 8510 – Evidence-Based Practice III: Implementation, Evaluation, and Dissemination | Walden University

As your practicum experience proceeds, talk with individuals in your practicum setting about social, political, technological, and/or financial considerations related to the implementation of an evidence-based practice project. For instance, you may opt to meet with a nurse manager or executive involved in financial matters to do a cost-benefit analysis or a return-on-investment analysis, or to develop a pro forma statement about how much it would cost to implement one practice versus another. Consider these insights as you evaluate the strengths and limitations of the evidence-based project, or as you analyze potential barriers to sustaining practice changes.
