For Immediate Release
Nursing Consulting Partners is pleased to announce our new Research and Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) consultative services, facilitated by a nationally recognized nursing scientist (NS), Peggy Kalowes PhD, RN, CNS, FAHA.
Our research service-line will meet the growing needs of healthcare systems to bridge the research—practice gap. We understand that hospitals are challenged with providing novel, innovative evidence-based therapies to patients, yet, lack the infrastructure to build their nursing research capacity and EBP in nursing. Our NCP Consultant Nurse Scientist serves as an expert research/EBP resource and mentor for staff and provides the leadership to promote nursing research as a strategic initiative among Magnet® Hospitals and those seeking to build professional practice environments.
PhD, RN, CNS, FAHA
