“Variables either are the primary quantities of interest or act as practical substitutes for the same”(Kaliyadan et al.,2019). An essential part of a successful evidence-based project plan is the identification of the independent and dependent variables that are to be measured. The independent variable for my project is the factors that contribute to the nursing shortage. The dependent variable is the shortage of nurses. And when evaluating the evidence-based project proposal you will want to look at whether your hypothesis was supported. A dependent variable is something that is a variable that depends on the independent variable kind of like a cause and effect aspect. The values of both the independent and dependent variables may change due to many different contributing factors and must be recorded. And the difference is that I will be able to control the value of the independent variable, while the value of the dependent variable will only change in response to the independent variable.

Evaluating independent and dependent variables in evidence-based projects is imperative. The variable that is manipulated is considered the independent variable (McLeod, 2019). The independent variable within this project is the time frame in which post-operative patients are ambulated. Another variable includes utilizing the mobility log after each ambulation session. These independent variables must be collected to determine if there is a direct impact on the dependent variable. More specifically, these independent variables will help determine if this project was successful in decreasing the hospital length of stay of post-operative patients. Dependent variables are manipulated by independent variables (McLeod, 2019). More specifically, the dependent variable is the variable that is being measured (Mcleod, 2019). In this project, the patient’s length of stay is considered the dependent variable. This is important to collect, as it will be utilized to determine if early ambulation leads to shorter length of stay when compared to the previous year’s audits.

When looking at the independent and dependent variables, you need to identify the cause (independent) and the effect (dependent) (NIH, n.d.). When looking at my proposal for
