Systematic reviews help nurses to manage the overwhelming volume of available information by synthesizing valid data from primary studies and summarizing the results of interventions. One reliable source of systematic reviews of healthcare interventions is the Cochrane Library. This paper briefly describes the Cochrane Collaboration and the Cochrane Library. It also encourages nurse clinicians and nurse administrators to use the Cochrane Library and encourages nurse researchers to contribute to the Cochrane Library by conducting systematic reviews in the field of nursing care effectiveness.
