My selected specialty Track is EDUCATION. BELOW IS THE DISCUSSION ASSIGNMENT:
Discuss the EBP process and importance to nursing practice. Identify your selected specialty track. Provide a rationale on why you selected the

specific professional track. Identify a concept or topic you have a passion about or an area of interest related to your future specialty

advanced practice area. Provide an example, using the best evidence available, substantiating the significance of your selected area of interest

as it relates to your specific specialty track.

BELOW IS RESOUCE INFORMATION TO HELP COMPLETE THE ASSIGNMENT

An important competency of an advanced practice nurse is to engage in scholarship. Nursing practice should not be based solely on opinions or

past practices but on the results of scientific evidence. The master’s- prepared advanced practice nurse is expected to integrate prior and

current evidence-based knowledge, skills, and attitudes and apply them to practice. The master’s-prepared advance practice nurse is also

expected to analyze gaps in knowledge or evidence, formulate research questions, and implement solutions for improving practice in one’s

specialty area (National League for Nursing [NLN], 2010). This week, we will define scholarship and evidence-based practice, consider an area of

interest, activate a spirit of inquiry, discuss a systematic method for conducting an evidence-based project, and describe the importance of

knowledge dissemination.
