Nurses with good information literacy competencies are able to provide evidence-based nursing practice resulting in positive patient outcomes. Most nurses, however, do not possess necessary attitudes, knowledge, and skills in information technology, nursing informatics, and information literacy.
Patients, and patient care, suffer!
The Learning Information Seeking and Technology for Evidence-based Nursing practice (LISTEN) project is designed to improve information literacy competencies of student and professional nurses. We are doing this by preparing:
- a series of online learning modules,
- web-based resources, and
- interactive opportunities to learn more.
The LISTEN Project is designed for adult learners who have:
- varying professional backgrounds
- different learning styles
- diverse aptitudes, knowledge, and skills
in information technology, information seeking, and information application.
