The Nursing Experts: Translating the Evidence project is a collaborative effort between nurses and librarians at several organizations. The goal of this project is to educate acute, ambulatory, school and population health nurses on where to find free and reliable evidentiary resources and how to effectively apply this knowledge to inform and impact practice. Participants complete free online evidence-based education modules and earn 7 free continuing education units for each course. For full details and to access the modules, visit: https://go.uic.edu/phnext for population health and school nurses and https://go.uic.edu/acnext for acute and ambulatory care nurses.
The GMR is happy to support phase three iteration of Nursing Experts: Translating the Evidence (NExT). Since 2001, the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Library of the Health Sciences and the College of Nursing have been engaged in a series of evidence-based education programs targeted to public health nurses. One of the objectives of this project is to provide Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for acute/ambulatory care as well as public health nurses. By providing evidence-based education programs, the NExT project assists hospitals in their quest to achieve Magnet status. This project has been funded in whole or in part with Federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Grant Number 1UG4LMO12312346 with the University of Iowa
