Information Literacy Competency Standards for Nursing

The Information Literacy Competency Standards for Nursing are based on two years of research on the information literacy needs of nursing students who are preparing for a profession in which evidence-based practice and translational research are fundamental values. The process for creation of these standards, are based on an extensive review of library and nursing literature; study of nursing standards used for accreditation; examining documents respected by nursing professionals and academics; as well as consultation with nursing faculty and library colleagues.
