Evidence-based practice can improve patient outcomes by defining best practices for clinical care. Clinical intervention research findings are necessary to build a body of knowledge that is evidence-based. The support and participation of nursing staff, who manage and coordinate patient care around the clock, is crucial to intervention researchers. Research is needed to identify characteristics of nurses and their work settings that facilitate or impede their participation in the conduct of research. The purpose of this descriptive correlational study was to examine the effect of personal and professional characteristics and attitudes about nursing research on staff nurses’ participation in a clinical nursing research project. A 66-item anonymous questionnaire was distributed to staff nurses who worked on 3 nursing units where a nursing research study was recently completed. Perceptions of attitude, availability, support, and use related to nursing research were measured with items from a scale designed by Champion and Leach (1989). Investigator-developed items measured nurses’ attitudes about the utility and feasibility of the interventions tested in the original study. Forty-three nurses have participated in this follow-up study. A factor analysis of responses will be used to assess conceptual clarity and congruence with previously published factor solutions for the existing instrument. Final factor scores and demographic variables will be entered into a discriminant function analysis with participation in the original IV study as the dependent variable. Findings from the study will contribute to the body of knowledge about factors that facilitate or impede staff nurses’ involvement in research. This knowledge will be useful for nurse researchers planning intervention studies to forecast and foster staff nurse involvement in their projects. Findings may also be useful to nurse managers, nurse educators, and staff development personnel in assessing and promoting staff nurses’ involvement in research.
