[Scientific Session Presentation] This study assessed nurse researchers at Magnet hospitals and describes strategies, barriers and facilitators they experienced with implementing nursing research programs in their hospitals.  The research question for this study was ?How do Magnet hospitals implement nursing research programs?? This was a descriptive study using a 39 item electronic questionnaire comprised of four sections: general questions, roles and activities, communication and demographics. An invitational letter was sent via electronic mail to 233 nurse researchers on the ANCC Magnet Nurse Researcher List Serve. Open ended questions addressed barriers and facilitators for implementation of these programs. Qualitative data were analyzed and themes identified. Quantitative data was analyzed using SPSS.   A response rate of 52% provided relevant information on the current state of nursing research at these Magnet hospitals.  Strategies to increase nursing research included taking an active role with Nursing Research Councils, becoming members of nursing research study teams, utilizing formal nursing research protocols and mentoring novice nurse researchers.  Barriers included fear, time and money to develop a nursing research program, and the inadequate preparation of nurses to participate in nursing research.  Facilitation of research programs included active support of CNOs, mentoring and collaborative relationships with other researchers. Although barriers exist for implementing nursing research programs in Magnet hospitals, they are overcome and clinical studies are being done by staff nurses. This offers opportunities for mentoring and replication of studies to broaden the foundation of clinical nursing studies. This study is relevant because of the increasing number of hospitals seeking Magnet recognition with the required focus on clinical research and the need to develop strong nursing research programs in hospitals.
