Background and Problem Statement: The Magnet Recognition Program
identifies facilities demonstrating excellence in nursing service. Magnet
Criterion XIII emphasizes the conduct of research and evidence based
practice (EBP), however little is known about the activities related to
that criterion, or comparisons to non-Magnet facilities. Purpose: The
purposes of this study were to (a) describe and compare research and EBP
activities within Magnet and non-Magnet facilities, and (b) explore the
nature of research and EBP collaborations between academia and practice.
Methods: Magnet facilities (n=70) and non-magnet facilities (n=60),
randomly selected and similar in size and teaching status, were surveyed
using 32 items to describe activities on 7 indices related to Criterion
XIII. An additional survey (n=59) and selected phone interviews were
conducted to obtain more detailed EBP information. Results: 41% of Magnet
facilities and 40% of non-Magnet facilities responded to the survey. Clear
differences were evident on all indices (collaboration with researchers,
established mechanisms for study review, use of findings in practice,
resources, environment, promotion of EBP, and effective use of theories)
with Magnet facilities reporting a 2-3X higher level of activity across
indices. Narrative data indicated no standard approach to EBP within
Magnet facilities, and little agreement on what constitutes an EBP
initiative. Faculty/student involvement in EBP initiatives was limited.
Conclusions: Research and EBP activities differ between Magnet and
non-Magnet facilities. Nurses in practice and academia are challenged to
identify research and EBP focused collaborations. Implications: Magnet
facilities are associated with better nurse and patient outcomes. The
results of this study indicate a higher level of activity in research and
EBP activities in Magnet facilities. Further studies are warranted to
better understand the relationship that exists between the level of
research and EBP activities, the nature of collaborations between academia
and practice, and both nurse and patient outcomes.
