Nursing Evidence-Based Practice Survey©

The Nursing Evidence-Based Practice Survey was developed as a practice setting assessment for nursing perceptions and EBP culture. The questionnaire was updated in 2005 to reflect implementation science developments and language. Factor analysis demonstrates good psychometrics for the original version and has not been re-evaluated.
