Evidence-based practice (EBP) is an essential component of the development of nursing science and has importance for today's clinical nurses. It benefits patients, organizations, and the nursing discipline, as well as having personal and professional benefits for individual clinicians. As interest in EBP has grown, so has the need for educational programs designed to develop the scholarly skills of the nursing workforce. The Clinical Scholar Model is one grassroots approach to developing a cadre of clinical nurses who have the EBP and research skills necessary in today's demanding health care delivery environments.
