When working in a clinical setting and there are more experienced nurses around us, most nurses default to asking the more experience nurse what to do in a clinical situation. The more experienced nurse might have experience with the situation, but is it evidence-based? Even when textual information was accessible in a clinical situation, it was shown that nurses preferred other nurses as a resource over the textual resource (Thompson, 2004). This is seen over and over in the patient care setting. When we are wondering how to deal with a situation, we just ask a nurse we think has dealt with the situation, and consider them the expert or the evidence-based research. As a clinical nurse leader, I field many questions each day. In order to move towards an evidence based practice, I must direct the nursing staff to the research related to the question.
