Leveraging the Librarian in a Nurse Residency Program

This project is part of the Nurse Residency Program being implemented at UPMC Mercy through the Department of Nursing. The Nurse Residency Program is a new, mandatory, year-long program that all newly-hired graduate nurses will have to complete. The program consists of twelve, four-hour long sessions, which ultimately culminates in an evidence-based practice project. The librarian will teach one of these sessions, focusing on the fundamentals of evidence-based practice, health information resources and research skills, how to apply these resources to final projects, and how to incorporate evidence-based practice principles into clinical practice. The librarian will also be present at other sessions throughout the program and will be the point person for their final project.
