Transforming nursing education: The JBI approach

JBI equips future nurses with the critical thinking skills and clinical judgment needed to make informed decisions in patient care, thereby enhancing both the quality and safety of healthcare delivery.

JBI's suite of resources, including the highly acclaimed JBI Evidence-Based Practice Database, is revolutionizing how nursing educators approach competency-based education. With access to over 5,000 evidence-based resources across 30 healthcare specialties, educators have an unparalleled repository of information at their fingertips. This database encompasses patient and caregiver experiences, costs, diagnostics, prognostics, and much more, providing a holistic view of patient care.

For instance, the recent integration of JBI Evidence Summaries into the Foundations of Nursing Practice Course by Paolo Colet, an assistant professor at Nazarayev University, highlights the practical application of JBI resources in nursing education. By aligning nursing procedures with evidence summaries, Colet significantly enhanced the learning experience for his students, demonstrating the effectiveness of JBI in improving educational outcomes.

Beyond the classroom

The impact of JBI resources extends far beyond the classroom. In clinical settings, the JBI EBP Database has supported hundreds of evidence-based practice (EBP) projects, directly influencing patient care and outcomes. In one notable example, the use of the JBI EBP Database facilitated a national multi-site best practice project led by Yanni Wu, resulting in standardized pre-treatment assessments for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy in more than 70 hospitals. Such initiatives underscore the real-world benefits of integrating JBI into nursing education and practice.

Moreover, the implementation of JBI PACES, a quality improvement software, in healthcare facilities signifies a leap towards embedding evidence into practice. It not only supports clinicians in driving continuous improvement but also integrates JBI's gold-standard Getting Research into Practice (GRiP) approach, paving the way for standardized, high-quality patient care across multiple healthcare domains.

A global consortium of excellence

JBI’s commitment to advancing evidence-based healthcare education, research, and implementation is further reinforced through its global collaborative evidence network, the JBI Collaboration. This network of 85+ universities, hospitals, and NGOs from 40+ countries comprises 3,000+ experts that foster an environment of collaboration and innovation, enabling members to stay at the forefront of EBP and contribute to shaping the future of healthcare globally.

Why JBI matters for nursing educators

For nurse educators and deans, the integration of JBI resources into curricula represents a strategic move towards cultivating a culture of EBP among nursing students. It equips future nurses with the critical thinking skills and clinical judgment needed to make informed decisions in patient care, thereby enhancing both the quality and safety of healthcare delivery.

Furthermore, utilizing JBI's resources can significantly improve the teaching and learning experience. Educators can access up-to-date, rigorously developed evidence and clinical guidance, making it easier to develop curricula that reflect the latest standards and recommendations in nursing practice. Students, in turn, learn to value and apply EBP from the outset of their careers, setting a new standard for excellence in nursing.

Engaging with JBI

For nursing educators looking to enhance their educational programs and clinical outcomes, engaging with JBI offers a wealth of opportunities. From free trials of JBI PACES to workshops and evidence implementation projects, there are numerous ways to integrate JBI's world-class resources into nursing education and practice.

By harnessing the power of JBI, nurse educators can play a pivotal role in shaping the next generation of nursing professionals — individuals who are not only skilled and knowledgeable but also wholly committed to the principles of EBP. It's an investment in the future of healthcare, one that promises to pay dividends in the form of improved patient outcomes and the overall advancement of the nursing discipline.

Educators can utilize JBI as a catalyst for change in the world of nursing education and practice. By embedding JBI's evidence-based resources and software into the foundations of nursing education, educators have the tools to prepare students for a challenging yet rewarding career in healthcare. In doing so, they are ensuring that the future of nursing remains in capable, well-informed hands.
