The application of Evidence-based Practice (EBP) competency has not been well implemented yet. Nurses still conduct practices and intervention based on “customs”. The nurses should make decisions systematically, in full awareness and prudence, the best evidence about the actual way of caring patients. The purpose of this study was to identify the correlation between education level of nurses with EBP competence. Descriptive correlation study with cross - sectional approach was conducted in December 2012 in Siloam Hospitals Kebun Jeruk. The sampel of this research consisted of nurses of Siloam Hospitals Kebun Jeruk taken using proportional stratified random sampling with a total of 105 nurses. The instrument used in this research was Evidence-Based Practice Questionnaire (EBPQ) with 24 questions to identify knowledge, skills and nurse attitude towards evidence-based practice (Scale 1-7). Data was analyzed using frequency and percentage and chi-square test. There are 20 nurses (19.1 %) with poor competence, 56 nurses (53.3 %) with moderate competence and 29 nurses (27.6 %) with good competence. The result showed that there was a significant correlation between level of education with competence to do the EBP (p value = 0.006) (< α = 0.05). It is expected that each nurse can improve their education to a higher level, as it proves that education can lead one to be skilled in finding the source of research, organize information, be professional in their work, and improve access to improve and implement EBP.
