Nurses need training and mentoring to lead evidence-based practice (EBP) improvements. An array of roles have been reported to have a positive impact on EBP adoption. A training program was created to assist point-of-care nurses and nurse leader partners in operationalizing the EBP Change Champion role to address priority quality indicators. The program, a case exemplar, and lessons learned are described with implications for leaders responsible for promoting EBP to improve quality care.
