Decrease nurse-nurse on bullying in the workplace by incorporating evidenced-based education and role playing.
The EB practice change is attempting to use education to hopefully help prevent workplace violence and in turn have long-term better outcomes and experiences for nurses and the patients they care for.
Stake Holders: Nurses, nursing supervisors, and hospital upper management/administration.
Barriers may include: lack of time, push back from nursing staff, rejection from nursing supervisors or administration, poor participation rate or little interest from staff, and lack of funding for the study.
Ways we can increase participation is to offer incentives, assure staff knows that all answers will be confidential, and to schedule intervention classes at a variety of times. Also, it is important to educate upper management of the costs of bullying among nurses and how being low on staff members may lead to poor employee retention and low morale among the nurses.

Increasing Daily Aerobic Activity in School Age Children to Improve Academic Achievement
EB Practice Change:
The evidence based practice change that would be implemented into my practice is increasing children’s daily physical activity. I would do this by educating parents on the academic achievement benefits of increased physical activity as well as the health benefits. I would also have resources for the families I served on sports, yoga, gymnastics and other groups that their kids may join to get more physical activity throughout the week.
Stakeholders of my evidence based practice change would be academic leaders of the community, families, pediatric nurses, educators and pediatric doctors.
Some barriers to this intervention would be the cost of joining extracurricular activities, possible push back from educators if class times is taken away for physical activity, children not wanting to participate in physical activity, and maybe parents not wanting to implement change in their children’s lifestyle.
