In the final session, exemplars of integration of EBP into varied curricula and projects will be presented. Innovative examples of ways that faculty utilized their novice EBP knowledge and skills and courageously integrated EBP concepts into courses across all levels of the curricula will be presented along with discussion of their personal experiences of change and transition to this emerging foundational concept. What worked, what didn’t work, what was easy to implement,  what was challenging, what surprised them and what they plan to do next semester will be included in the faculty contributions. In addition, future plan of the expert EBP team to reinforce, enhance and sustain the growth of EBP in the curriculum and address particular challenges that lie ahead will be discussed.
