Members of the Inova Loudoun Nursing team take part in the system-wide Research and Evidence Based Practice (EBP) program. Each year ILH is proud of our nurse’s involvement and contribution.

We support the Vizient Nurse Residency Program and the numerous, inspirational, and innovative EBP projects developed by our nurse residents. Additionally, we support and facilitate the initiatives of other registered nurses within the campus, who are undertaking evidence based projects and research.

Inova nurses undertaking research projects have access to world-class support resources, including:

  • Librarians in the Inova Fairfax Health Sciences Library
  • Grants Management Office
  • Access to many research and EBP templates
  • The privilege to work collaboratively with other health care institutions

Below is a sample of our ILH Research and EBP posters, podium presentations, and published articles. Efforts contribute to systematically improving patient care, reducing error, and enhancing the integrity and excellence of all health care interactions.
