Evidence-Based Practice Award
​in collaboration with the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses


The Evidence-Based Practice Award is the process of integrating knowledge and clinical experience to achieve excellence in nursing practice. It is characterized by a high level of curiosity, critical thinking, continuous learning, reflective practice, and the ability to seek and use a spectrum of interdisciplinary resources in care delivery.

The Evidence-Based Practice Award, formerly known as the Clinical Scholarship Award, was established in 1997 to recognize a nurse, group of nurses, or organization who is self-motivated and foster a practice environment that promotes and values creativity, questioning, data-based decision making, access and synthesis of new knowledge, and the use of innovations to improve practice and clinical outcomes.
