Few nurses consistently incorporate nursing research findings in clinical practice. Reasons for the lack of research utilization have been identified, but as health care changes, so may the barriers. The purposes of this study were to identify hospital-based RNs' perceptions of research utilization barriers and institutional differences across seven hospitals within one health system. A survey consisting of the Factors Affecting Use of Research in Practice questionnaire (Funk, Champagne, Tornquist & Wiese, 1987), newly developed questions, and demographic survey was sent to 4,400 hospital-based RNs with a total of 2,316 (53%) completed surveys returned. Top barriers identified by individual item score means differed with four hospitals identifying cost and time, two hospitals identifying lack of authority to change and time, and one hospital identifying complex organization structures and time. Statistically significant differences between large and small hospitals were demonstrated on four of seven subscales including; organizational complexity (<0.0001), inability to implement research (<0.001), availability of research (<0.05), and clarity of need for change (<0.05). While the barrier of time was identified at all sites, barriers of cost containment, organizational complexity, and authority differed. Further research of those factors as barriers and differences between organizations may be warranted.
