Objective: Nurse scholars have long held that the profession and discipline of nursing are inextricably bound through a shared interest in the advancement of nursing practice (Riley and Omery, 1996). The critical questions are: 1)What does it mean to be a nursing scholar in a practice discipline? 2)How do nurses view professional practice as a holistic scholarly experience? To answer these questions, this study validated The Universal Model of Nursing Scholarship (Riley, Beal, Levi, McCausland, 2002). Design: This multi-center qualitative study used narrative analysis to interpret nurses’ discourse about care giving and scholarship as a way to validate the overlap and balance of the parameters of professional practice and scholarship. Population, Sample, Setting: Twenty participants were purposefully recruited from award recipients and nominees for Nursing Excellence Awards given to clinical nurses who were nominated by their peers for exemplary nursing practice at two major medical centers in the Northeast. Concept or Variables Studied: The Universal Model of Nursing Scholarship includes 4 domains: knowing, teaching, practice, service. Methods: A 60-90 minute semi-structured interview was conducted to understand how nurse experts see themselves as caregivers and scholars. Interviews were audiotaped and transcribed verbatim for narrative analysis by NVivo. Themes were validated by reader confirmation and focus groups with participants and clinical nurse educators. Findings: Nurses provided evidence of language that links practice to scholarship. Nurses confirmed that the scholarship of knowing, teaching, practice, and service are integral components of their professional lives. Conclusions: Nurse experts across practice roles and work settings articulate the 4 domains of the Universal Model of Nursing Scholarship when describing their clinical practice. Implications: The confirmation of the domains of the Universal Model of Nursing Scholarship supports the belief that nursing scholarship flourishes in the practice environment. This model reflects a holistic paradigm for professional nursing.
