May 20th is the International Clinical Trial day, remembering the first clinical trial developed in history. Its methodological characteristics made clinical trial be a kind of study which provides high level of evidence and, therefore, they are supposed to have a high quality in advance. However, very often nurses hear about this clinical trials and they really do not think they are studies which could be developed by nurses. Even it might be doubts regarding if these kind of studies might be developed by nurses (if we are allowed for doing them). Therefore I want to write this editorial in order to solve some doubts, as clinical trials will provide us knowledge about our practice based on scientific basis and, this way, they will allow us to provide care based on the best evidence available.
