The Registered Nurses Association of Ontario (RNAO) is the professional voice of registered nurses, nurse practitioners and nursing students in the province of Ontario, Canada. RNAO’s mandate is to influence and promote public health policy and clinical excellence. RNAO’s best practice guideline (BPG) program established in 1999, focuses on BPG development, implementation and evaluation and has impacted clinical and academic excellence globally. The Best Practice Spotlight Organization (BPSO®) Designation, is RNAO’s unique organizational knowledge exchange strategy that supports health care and academic organizations to implement and integrate multiple best practice guidelines into daily practice and education. Beijing University of Chinese Medicine (BUCM) has recently become the first academic BPSO in China to enable successful implementation of BPGs which must include not only clinical nurses but also nursing educators and students. While relatively new in implementing BPGs into the nursing curricula, BUCM School of Nursing has developed key strategies to support this work. This paper will discuss the nursing educational innovation of integrating BPGs into the curricula to cultivate evidence-based practice (EBP) at the BUCM School of Nursing from the perspectives of undergraduates, graduates and nursing educators.
