Do you ever feel like you're
re-inventing the wheel?

Do you wonder how other nurses are addressing patient care needs and achieving excellence in practice through the use of evidence?

These and other questions stimulated us to develop the National Nursing Practice Network® (NNPN).  NNPN is a community of practices committed to the promotion and implementation of evidence-based practices (EBP) to improve healthcare and population health.  The NNPN is composed of over 100 community and academic healthcare systems and hospitals representing in 32 states in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Singapore.  We are excited about the work we are doing and the future possibilities for continued improvement in patient care.
