This is a civilian position and will be in support of Palladian's contract with the TriService Nursing Research Program (TSNRP).

The EBP Facilitator will directly support organization-wide EBP teams that further the goals of the hospital leadership team, especially the senior nurse leader.

The EBP Facilitator is expected to function autonomously and develop long-term goals with plans to address those goals. The EBP Facilitator position requires a foundation of clinical knowledge, organizational function, data analysis abilities, and strong written and verbal communication skills.
