The most crucial principle of evidence-based medicine; evaluating available evidence, obtaining the best evidence, and making a decision based on that evidence. The basis of evidence-based nursing practices; the production of the best available evidence in the field of nursing, the use of this evidence in nursing care by integrating with clinical expertise and patient preferences. In this context, randomized controlled experimental designs are directly related and indispensable for producing evidence and informing nurses about clinical nursing decisions. In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of experimentally designed and published studies in nursing. However, limitations remain regarding the use of reporting systems that provide a complete, open, and transparent presentation of randomized controlled experimental designs' methodology and findings. For this reason, it is crucial to report randomized controlled studies according to internationally validated checklists in nursing studies to determine reporting standards and to avoid systematic reporting errors. In this review, it is aimed to emphasize the importance of reporting randomized controlled studies in the field of nursing according to the Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials system and to raise awareness about the use of the nonpharmacological CONSORT extension in nursing research. Keywords: Evidence-based nursing, randomized controlled trial, nursing research.
