The Young Scientist Program at The University of Iowa College of Nursing was launched in 2000 in response to an increasing demand for nursing science and evidence-based practice as well as a declining pool of nursing faculty. The Young Scientist Program provides unique year-long mentored research experiences for undergraduate nursing students. Exceptional undergraduate students are selected through a competitive application and review process, matched with nurse investigators, and fully integrated into their mentor's active research project. Young Scientist students participate on the project for eight to ten hours per week for a minimum of two semesters. Young Scientist students contribute to vital aspects of these research projects, from subject recruitment and data collection to data analysis and dissemination of results. In addition, student-mentor pairs are funded to attend a regional or national nursing research conference. The goals of the Young Scientist Program are to provide the opportunity for students to experience nursing research first-hand, to enhance student appreciation for evidence as the basis for practice, and to facilitate their transition into graduate school. Five student-mentor pairs have completed the program and 10 pairs are currently participating. This poster will further describe the Young Scientist Program objectives and activities, highlight the experience of two student-mentor pairs, and summarize ongoing program evaluation.
