Baccalaureate-prepared nurses are expected to participate in evidence-based practice by identifying clinical questions, critiquing evidence, and integrating theory into practice. This presents a challenge for faculty to facilitate a research course in a way that is valued by nursing students and will ultimately prepare them to successfully enter the workforce. This article describes an innovative strategy to engage millennial learners in an undergraduate research course by implementing a two-part evidence-based practice project. Student feedback has been positive with expressed interest in the project's application to practice.
