Abstract

The University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing introduced evidence-based practice (EBP) into the freshman-level curriculum this year. This article describes the reasons behind this decision, the development of the curriculum, the specific EBP content, and the student assignments. The introduction of EBP into the first-level nursing curriculum has proven to be successful; consideration is even being given to expanding the EBP content.
