Abstract

Evidence-based nursing (EBN) is central to the knowledge base for nursing practice, and evidence based interventions are considered as one of the best avenues to achieve maximum outcomes [1]. These interventions typically are implemented through the portals of nursing management forming the context for delivery of nursing practice [2]. Hence, understanding how to provide high quality nursing care efficiently and making management decisions based in evidence is of increasing importance. EBN management requires a research-driven approach for identifying patient, professional, and setting characteristics that affect the processes of care at micro and meso levels. Yet nurse managers cite lack of time and skills; limited access to search engines or poor understanding of research language and most importantly a paucity of management research articles as a barrier to EBN. This study explored the possibility of using the NMMDS to retrieve research related to nursing management.
