Hi, Joshua,

May I know which one is appropriate?

(1) Outcome Based Education had been implemented in nursing education for several years.

(2) Outcome Based Education have been implemented in nursing education for several years.

(3) Outcome Based Education was implemented in nursing education for several years.

Although I see on the Internet that some people use it without a hyphen, I would say "Outcome-based education."

(1) and (3) are correct. (2) is incorrect — you should use "has" because "education" is singular. With that correction, all three can be used in different situations. I'm not sure the verb "implement" works well with "for several years." Although implementations can take some time, they refer to a one-time, non-recurrent action, for example:

- Outcome Based Education was implemented in nursing education several years ago.
BUT
- Outcome Based Education has been used in nursing education for several years.
