The paper discusses articles by nurses who have contemplated the implications of EBP when applied to both nursing research and practice. The paper demonstrates how each author centers on specific aspects concerning EBP, which may be empirical, practical, or even political (macro) in nature. The paper discusses how the main concern about this new framework is its applicability to nursing practice; the authors agreed that EBP should not be implemented as a practice based only on research information. The paper relates that EBP is not only criticized from an empirical and practical point of view, but for its political aspects as well.
