In 2002, the School of Nursing at the Pontificia Universidad Católica in Ecuador introduced the teaching of evidence-based practice as part of the Curriculum Reform and Career Diversification Project. Now, over a decade later, the effectiveness of its implementation is being analyzed. Objective: Explore the beliefs, opportunities for implementation and support provided by the institution and its organizational culture to the teaching of evidence-based nursing practice (EBN). Materials and Methods. This is a qualitative and quantitative exploratory study involving 18 teachers and 77 students. The instruments included two surveys (Likert scale): one for professors and another for students. Results: The results of the surveys were analyzed with different data stratification: professors, students, the five steps in the EBN method and other criteria. A weighted mean was applied, as was a one-way and two-way ANOVA, with a significance level of α = 0.05, and Tukey-Kramer’s multiple comparison method. Discussion: A comparison of the responses of both groups showed considerable importance was attributed to beliefs about EBN, but not to implementing changes in EBN practice or teaching, which is contradictory. Conclusion: The perception of teachers and students on the dimensions of EBN beliefs and implementation was quite similar in both groups. The dimension of the organizational culture was different and the professors had a more severe view.
