Evidence Based Practice (EBP) is a multi-step process that improves patient outcomes and quality of care based on the body of evidence. The literature identifies a lack of statistical fluency as a common barrier to integration of EBP into nursing practice. The Language of Data (LoD) website teaches healthcare providers symbol recognition and statistical concepts through repetition. This pre/post study explored the effectiveness of a series of short (< 5 minutes) videos on knowledge among nursing students across the U.S. Students completed a pre-test via Redcap, then watched a series of short (< 5 minutes each) LoD videos. A week later, participants completed a post-test to assess knowledge retention of select concepts. Due to low post-test response rate due to COVID, only pre-test data was analyzed. Results on pre-test data were consistent with the literature regarding baseline knowledge, providing data-driven decisions in the development of videos for the LoD website.
