Despite different plans and strategies to enhance nursing research in Middle Eastern countries, the growth in research has not been paralleled by an equal growth in nursing education and nursing practice. Nurses are expected to conduct nursing research and use research findings to enhance the body of nursing knowledge and improve patient care and clinical practice. Barriers to conduct nursing research still exist and expand the gap between theory and practice. The aim of this study is to assess the barriers and the facilitators of research utilization among nurse educators and clinical nurses in Middle Eastern countries. Further, this study will highlight to what extent faculty and clinical nurses implement research findings in their practice. The theory of behavior change (Prochaska and DiClemente, 1986) will be used to guide this study. The theory indicates that individuals may change their behaviors to power their profession and practice. The change can only take place in the context of a supportive and an encouraging environment. A descriptive design will be used to answer the study questions: (1) What barriers to research utilization do faculty nurses and clinical nurses perceive in their practice? (2) What facilitators to research utilization do faculty nurses and clinical nurses perceive in their practice? (3) Are faculty nurses and clinical nurses aware of current research findings relevant to their practice? And (4) Do faculty nurses and clinical nurses implement research findings in their practice? A convenience sample of 100 faculty nurses and 200 clinical nurses from medical and surgical units in Egypt and Saudi Arabia will be interviewed using the Barriers to Research Utilization Scale, Funk et al., (1987). Results of this study may help nurse educators and clinical nurses in addressing barriers to research utilization and in developing strategies directed toward improving policy and practice. Recommendation for health care policy, education and research will be also expressed.
