    Dear Editor,
    This response is in relation to the titled article above published in June 2019. Firstly, I would like to commend the outstanding work of research done. While reading the article, I understood the correlation between the nursing field, evidence-based research, and ways in which patients benefit from current health practices. Furthermore, the research conducted a wide range of research benefits in other nursing career paths globally. It showed experts views on teaching evidenced based prospectus, evidence-based deliberations, and stakeholders’ engagement which can impact patients involved. I agree with the study conducted and how research is essential for future advancements as well as improvements in care to patients. Unfortunately, there aren’t as much published research work in The Bahamas on evidence-based practices from an expert view. Through further research this thesis can become widespread to obtain more views on this pressing matter.
