Objective: To understand the evidence-based practice readiness of developing evidence application projects in a 3A-level general hospital in Beijing, to identify barriers to evidence-based practice and to promote the successful application of evidence.

Methods: All the clinical nurses who are going to participate in the application units of the evidence-based practice project are selected as the survey objects, and the self-made “Basic Information Questionnaire” and “Clinical Readiness to Evidence-based Nursing Assessment (CREBNA)” are used to conduct the survey. The total amounts and subscales are calculated. The factors that influence the score of the total scale were scored and analyzed.

Results: The CREBNA total score was (119.87±19.18), the evidence subscale score was (47.94±8.54), the organizational environmental subscale score was (36.09±6.11), and the facilitator subscale score was (35.83±7.56). Univariate analysis showed that the total score of the scale was related to years of work, scientific research experience, knowledge of evidence-based care, and participation in evidence-based practice.

Conclusion: The current evidence-based practice preparation situation is good. It is feasible to carry out evidence-based practice activities in the hospital. The follow-up development plan should be made based on the corresponding obstacle factors.
