Title:
Support for research provided by colleges/schools of nursing
Abstract:
Support for research provided by colleges/schools of nursing
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001

P.I. Institution Name:University of Florida
Objective: According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) position statement on nursing research, colleges/schools of nursing should be dedicated to providing leadership, support, and infrastructure for development and maintenance of scientifically sound research programs. Thriving research programs require a supportive environment, strong mentoring opportunities, financial and physical infrastructure, and internal and external funding mechanisms to generate quality scientific research. The purpose of this study was to describe the research support services provided by colleges/schools of nursing with doctorate programs in the United States. Design: Exploratory survey design. Sample: Eighty-two schools or colleges of nursing in the United States that identified by the American Association of College of Nursing (www.aacn.nche.edu) were included in this study. Variables: Intramural funding, organization/structure of research support services, funding of these services, and physical spaces allotted to research services are major areas of concern for this survey. Measures/Instruments: A self-reporting questionnaire was used to obtain information related to research support resources provided by the doctoral granting colleges and schools of nursing. The questionnaire was reviewed by two PhD-prepared nursing faculty members who are expert in research and administration. A survey form along with a self-addressed, stamped return envelope was sent to each school. During the process of data entry, the Carnegie Classification website (www.carnegiefoundation.org/Classification) was used to identify missing information about the schools’ classifications. Using NIH data for 1999 (NIH Support to Schools of Nursing, Fiscal Year 1999, http://grants.nih.gov/grants/award/award.htm), the total NIH funding for each school was added to the data. Findings: Of 82 colleges/schools of nursing with doctorate programs surveyed, 65 (79%) colleges/schools responded. Eighty-six percent of 65 schools surveyed have a designated research support office/department/center that provides a variety of services including intramural grants, research spaces, statistical support, and assistance with grant and manuscript preparation. Main goals of nursing research offices are to increase the amount of extramural funding and to promote dissemination of scholarly work via publications/presentations. Conclusions: Most schools with doctoral programs are investing significant amount of time, money, and effort into research development. However, the degree of investment varies widely among the respondents. Implications: While the results of this study allow a beginning understanding of how colleges and schools of nursing are supporting the research efforts of their faculty, they do not provide the direction that would allow a school to justify providing one type of support versus another. It appears that schools are trying to develop their research missions by providing every support possible without having a way to evaluate their effectiveness in promoting faculty research. Future work might investigate the relationship between intramural start-up grants and future extramural funding or between editorial services and publication rates.
