The aim of this paper is to formulate a PICOT question and describe how important this research question is to nursing practice. It will include a summary of five research articles related to my PICOT question and identify a nursing practice that is supported by current research. The paper will also explain how a nursing practice that is supported by evidence-based practice can contribute to better outcomes. Lastly, I will share a strategy to share evidence-based practice throughout my organization and explain the importance of the practice.

The medical field has to be ran by the utmost wonderful nurses. Nurse Practitioners (NP) are Advanced Practice Registered Nurses who provide care to patients throughout the lifespan, all the way from premature newborns to the elderly. Physician Assistants (PA) practice medicine on a team under the supervision of physicians and surgeons.

In 1965 the first Nurse Practitioner (NP) training program was created by a physician Henry Silver and a nurse Loretta Ford. There was a shortage of primary care physicians due to increased specializations in medicine.
