Abstract

Although Evidence-Based Nursing (EBN) is generally acknowledged as having great potential for nursing practice, philosophic issues regarding EBN are not as yet well-discussed. Unless and until such discussions take place within the discipline, EBN will not be clearly accepted. Philosophic analysis, as one type of philosophic inquiry, is used to address selected issues underlying EBN. This method includes examination of recurrent themes, metanarratives, and presentation of exemplar cases to ground such issues.
