The nurse first identifies and defines his or her topic of interest. The definition of the problem should be in the form of a question which guides the search for the information. This helps locate several bits of information, directly or indirectly connected to the identified requirement. Then the nurse evaluates the authenticity of the content and retrieves only current, reliable information. Then the information is organized and incorporated into the existing body of knowledge. After that the nurse manages this information by dividing it into understandable bits of data. Finally, the nurse applies simple meaningful terms to replace complex language or technicalities in the literature.
