The evidence-based practice movement within nursing has created a culture ripe for collaboration between nursing practice and education.  St. Joseph?s Hospital Health Center Nursing Research Committee, part of a 431-bed comprehensive care medical institution in Syracuse, New York took a closer look at the process required to construct a collaborative culture that encompasses the best practices of university-based researchers and hospital-based clinicians as part of its strategic initiative to provide expert and innovative care to residents of 16 counties in Central New York.  We strive to promote a spirit of scientific inquiry amongst competent practitioners, leading to the achievement of superior patient care outcomes. The Hospital?s award through the ANCC?s Magnet Recognition Program also served as an impetus to formalize the process for collaboration between nursing faculty and hospital-based nurses in regards to research initiatives. Based upon the assumption that the quality of patient care will improve if nurses? clinical judgment is supported by evidence from research, the Nursing Research Committee was convened.  Committee members were strategically selected to represent nursing leadership from various patient service areas, nursing faculty from the Hospital?s College of Nursing, regional university faculty versed in research, staff development professionals, advanced practice nurses, and bedside nurses.  By approaching this undertaking using a collaborative effort, we were able to overcome the barriers many facilities face when designing a successful evidence-based practice nursing campaign.  These barriers include insufficient time to attain evidence-based practice goals, lack of resources, lack of available expertise and reluctance to practice change.  The purpose of this poster presentation is to share with conference attendees the Hospital?s methodology for constructing an innovative Nursing Research Committee.  Strategic Committee components, roles of the key collaborators, and the process used to engage the acute care staff nurse in research utilization to guide practice decisions will be outlined.
