oa Professional Nursing Today - Editorial
International Nurses Day (ICN), "Closing the gap: from evidence to action", will be celebrated on 12 May 2012 in most countries around the world. This year, the official ICN theme speaks to all professional nurses, as nurses need to learn how to accumulate all the evidence and knowledge that they have gathered over the years, and to put it into action. The Millennium Goals agreed to by the United Nations forces nurses to take action. They must learn how to identify the best available evidence for their specific healthcare service and user needs, and then use their nursing skills and expertise to improve health care through the implementation of the relevant identified evidence. The first step is to obtain information on how to identify the relevant evidence.
