EBPHN Tutorial
Note about these tutorials. The tutorial is made up of six training modules that were develop by librarians in order to enhance the search skills of public health nurses as they search for evidence based public health nursing. The tutorial originally provided contact hours to nurses who completed all 6 assessments and who also completed an evaluation. We are no longer providing CE Credit for the tutorial.
