Evidence Based Practice Poster and Oral Presentation
Objective: To help nursing students become accustomed to searching the literature for evidence that supports nursing practice, and to polish poster and oral presentation skills. This is an individual assignment.
Task: You are an experienced nurse who just signed a contract for a staff position at Passaway General Hospital. On your first month at work, you notice a few questionable nursing practices that you learned to do differently at your previous place of employment. As a BSN-prepared nurse, your unit manager has asked you to review the best evidence on the topic and create an A/V poster presentation for your colleagues on the unit. He has asked you record your presentation using YouTube so both night and day shifts can view it at their convenience.

2. Review nursing, medical, and evidence-based practice literature related to your topic, following guidelines from the rubric to ensure you obtain information that addresses each section of the rubric.
3. Critically appraise the evidence you have located (refer to textbooks for instructions).

Purpose, Introduction, Search Methods, Findings (includes research literature and nursing guidelines) Nursing Implications, Conclusion
