Nursing Research and Evidence-Based Practice Committee

YNHH’s Nursing Research and Evidence-Based Practice Committee helps teams of nurses engage in evidence-based practice and research projects that positively affect nursing practice at YNHH and beyond. The committee also helps nurses disseminate project results at local and national conferences. A number of YNHH nurses have received national and international awards for their scholarly work, and most go on to publish in peer-reviewed journals.
