The debate regarding evidence-based practice (EBP) continues to rage within nursing. This article reviews the existing situation regarding policy and the ability of nurses to engage with EBP. Recommendations are made regarding moving the debate away from a focus on barriers to EBP towards seizing it as an opportunity. The article suggests that a fundamental change in attitude is required by nurses in order for the nursing profession to progress. There is a need to recognize that the nature of health services are changing and that nurses need to grasp the opportunities this makes available, but in order to do this nurses need support.
