Write a 300 – word paper using APA Format.

Nurse Manager vs Nurse Practitioner (2)

Post a 3-5 sentence response to the below discussion question answer. Must have citations and with references in apa format:

“Evidence-based practice simply refers to combining research, clinical knowledge, and patient preferences to reach a health care decision – it emphasizes the use of the highest-quality information and deemphasizes the use of customs, opinions, or rituals to make a clinical judgment (DeCapua, 2019).” Because evidence-based practices encompass combining information from many different sources, including quality improvement and research, using the results from this would determine the best treatment for the patient. Because of this, providing care with EBP would be providing the patient with care that is safe, effective, and compassionate. 

Nursing Managers, on the other hand, play a major role in a unit-based culture in which nursing practice is guided by evidence (Fisher & Sheeron, 2014). The role of the nurse manager is to encourage and support the clinical nurses working on the floor and develop a spirit of inquiry, seek answers to their clinical questions using EBP, and advance their clinical performance to improve patient outcomes (Caramanica & Spiva, 2018). This can be difficult as nurse managers still have to be able to perform their role responsibilities and attend to the demands of the unit while still supporting their nurses. Today, I believe that the role of the nurse manager in supporting evidence-based practice is under used and largely passive. If nurse managers were given the opportunity to support their clinical nursing staff as they were meant to be, I believe the results could be more fruitful, which would lead to nurses with stronger critical thinking skills and patients who receive high quality EBP patient care.

Original Question: How would a nurse practitioner and a nurse manager differ with regard to how they use and incorporate EBP in their areas of practice?

Samples and Data Collection


This week’s graded topics relate to the following Course Outcomes (COs). CO 2: Apply research principles to the interpretation of the content of published research studies. (PO 4 & 8) CO 4: Evaluate published nursing research for credibility and significance related to evidence-based practice. (PO 4 & 8) CO 5: Recognize the role of research findings in evidence-based practice. (PO 7 & 8) Discussion

Access the following information. You may read the PDF online or download it.

American Nurses Association. (2014). Fast facts: The nursing workforce 2014: Growth, salaries, education, demographics & trends. ANA. Retrieved from  (Links to an external site.) Review the data presented in the ANA Fast Facts and describe some of the key attributes/characteristics of this sample of the nursing workforce. Discuss some of the data that you found interesting; include what you believe the purpose (intent) of ANA sharing these results. The instruments and tools that we use to collect data need to be reliable and valid. Define these terms and explain the importance of each. Share one way that can be used to collect data that you were not aware of or familiar with.

Professor’s comment: Class,
This week we are continuing our discussion on methods as well as data collection. How does a researcher ensure that reliability and validity are maintained in instruments and between raters?

You are also asked to read the above fast facts from the ANA. What was your impression of this data collected? What do you believe the intent was of the researcher who designed the survey?  Furthermore, discuss instruments, tools, reliability and validity.

We will continue our discussion in this thread talking about various instruments and how the strength of an instrument is an important part of the research process. Often times if the data collection instrument is poor, then the results will be, too.

We will be working toward the following Course Outcomes in this thread: Apply research principles to the interpretation of the content of published research studies. Evaluate published nursing research for credibility and lab significance related to evidence-based practice. Recognize the role of research findings in EBP.

I look forward to seeing you advance your research knowledge! Paula

Describe how the results of the measures can be used for quality improvement in one of the following medical settings: physician office (ambulatory care),community health center and hospital

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is an organization that, “Ensures the voices and needs of the populations we represent are present as the agency is developing, implementing, and evaluating its programs and policies” (Mission, Vision & Our Work). This organization is governmental as it assists individuals of all ages in the United States. The information gathered is for External Stakeholders. This is due to changes being readily available for those who are impacted by the updates. The quality improvement measures found on the CMS website are patient engagements, care coordination, health outcomes, patient safety, and clinical processes. (Mission, Vision & Our Work)


The Joint Commission mission statement is, “To continuously improve health care for the public, in collaboration with other stakeholders, by evaluating health care organizations and inspiring them to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value” (The Joint Commission). The Joint Commission is not working for profit so it can be accounted as an accreditation. In comparison with CMS, the Joint Commission also has external stakeholders so that changes can be available for all that may be impacted with such updates. The five quality improvement measures found on the JC website are data knows best, invest upfront, communication, proper planning prevents poor performance, and don’t be a dinosaur.
