Jamesetta (Jamie) Newland is clinical professor emerita at NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing. A strong proponent of faculty practice, she spent much of her clinical practice time in nurse-managed health centers (NMHCs), holding positions as direct care nurse practitioner (NP), administrative director, and consultant on NMHCs and faculty practice. She has taught graduate students, master's and doctoral, since 1993. Considered an expert in NP education and practice, her services have been sought internationally by schools of nursing in Botswana, China, Japan, and Lithuania, and she was instrumental in establishing new advanced nursing practice master's programs in several countries. 

Newland has numerous scholarly publications to her credit and serves as the editor-in-chief of The Nurse Practitioner journal. Diverse activities in professional organizations demand much of her time, but she remains committed to lifelong learning for adults, including nurses, and promotes building partnerships with patients to provide the best care.

Registered nurses' attitudes and confidence in evidence-based practice and facilitators and barriers for implementation: A literature review

Kiviliene, J., Blaževičiene, A., & Newland, J. (2023). Nursing Education, Research, & Practice NERP, 13(1), 14.
Summary. This study aimed to identify, appraise, and summarize the available evidence relating to nurses’ attitudes, confidence in evidence-based practice (EBP), and facilitators and barriers for implementation of EBP in nursing.Methods. PubMed, The Cochrane Library, EBSCO (Nursing Reference Center Plus), and Google Scholar were searched from January 2010 to January 2021. Studies in English that met the following criteria were considered for inclusion: quantitative and qualitative research that assessed the most common facilitators and barriers for implementation of EBP in nursing practice; andnurses’ attitudes and confidence in using EBP in their daily routine.Results. Seventeen studies were included in the review. In quantitative studies, questionnaires were specifically developed for use in six while the other 10 used validated instruments. One qualitative study was included. In 12 studies, researchers reported elements of nurses’ attitudes and confidence about EBP. Facilitators to the implementation of EBP were explored in 11 studies, andbarriers were identified in 12 studies. Results of this review indicate that nurses face challenges in implementing EBP.Conclusion. To improve the use of EBP in nursing practice, nurses need to understand that nursing practice depends on some fundamental factors such as nurse education, computer literacy, work environment, experience, personal qualities, and colleagues around them. This literature review highlights the necessity of education in finding and accessing evidence, nurses’ autonomyover nursing practice, mentorship for successful implementation, and organizational support.
