A major component of St. Jude’s academic mission is to generate,
evaluate, implement and disseminate new knowledge and cutting-edge technologies.
Nurses working in a healthy professional environment continuously ask
questions about their practice and patient outcomes, explore and implement
evidence-based solutions to continuously improve their care, and when
needed; conduct formal research to generate new knowledge.
Finding innovative ways to achieve high-quality, effective and efficient
care is an outcome of the well-developed structures and processes that
engage and support nurses in professional practice.

When nursing practice is rooted in scientific evidence, care becomes more
effective, efficient, and reliable, and results in better outcomes for
patients and families.
At St. Jude, structures exist to:
- Ensure nursing practice is evidence-based
- Build nursing research capacity
- Develop and disseminate innovations in nursing practice
