Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) is challenging nurse leaders to adopt new decision- making practices.

This article uses a case study to describe the evidence-based management process. The authors provide strategies for nurse leaders to develop evidence-based management competencies and build a culture to support the use of evidence to inform decision-making in leadership and management.
