The Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-Based Practice (JHNEBP) model is a powerful problem-solving approach to clinical decision-making, and is accompanied by user-friendly tools to guide individual or group use. It is designed specifically to meet the needs of the practicing nurse and uses a three-step process called PET: practice question, evidence, and translation. The goal of the model is to ensure that the latest research findings and best practices are quickly and appropriately incorporated into patient care.





Here’s What People Are Saying About the JHN EBP Model:

  • "For nurses new to evidence-based practice, the Johns Hopkins model is one of the easiest to understand, and the tools are excellent at working through the process step by step. I presented three different models to my evidence-based practice nursing council and all nurses — all of whom are new to evidence-based practice — agreed that the Johns Hopkins model was easiest to understand and utilize."
  • "After reviewing several other models, the Johns Hopkins Nursing Center for Evidence-Based Practice provided a more descriptive and easy-to-use method to evaluate evidence for the bedside nurse."
  • "The Johns Hopkins evidence-based practice model best suited our organization. The model is easy to understand and follow, and provides a clear framework for conducting evidence-based practice inquiry. The tool for grading the strength of evidence is usable and reliable."
