Becoming a Member

Dear Chief Nursing Officer or Equivalent:

February 2014 marked the 9th anniversary of the National Nursing Practice Network® (NNPN), a network of 107 member organizations in 32 states in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Singapore. The goal of the organization is to improve patient care by promoting and implementing evidence-based practice (EBP) through a collaborative model of shared learning and participation. Our member organizations, steering committee, and workgroups have worked diligently to accomplish these goals.

  • The Steering Committee serves as an advisory body to the Director of the NNPN.  The Steering Committee provides annual strategic direction, priority setting, and governance oversight to NNPN.
  • The Education and Networking Workgroup provides educational programming on Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) to members of the NNPN, and provides environments that encourage and support communication in the pursuit of evidence-based healthcare practices.
  • Our Partners in Research Workgroup is a resource for gathering organizational information allowing for better implementation of evidence-based practices, and provides a consortium of sites for research and translation science.
  • The Leaders Workgroup provides effective strategies for nursing leadership to develop and sustain an evidence-based culture.
  • The Transformation to EBP (T-EBP) Workgroup develops programs and strategies to integrate evidence into practice at the point of care.
