In a country of a billion people, there are approximately 100 nurses holding doctoral degrees in India. Education is a highly prized, precious and rare commodity and a centrally-directed system of qualifying examinations cones down the number of aspirants to a small fraction of those wishing to further their education. At the same time, efforts to expand educational opportunities for nursing education in particular creates a huge demand for teachers, thus sapping intellectual resources for clinical practice and research. Graduate education prepares nurses primarily for teaching and administrative roles but all MSc (N) students have a research course that entails a project incorporating the research process. This presentation will be a case study of the progress being made by two South Indian nursing schools to illustrate the facilitators and barriers faced in developing an infrastructure to support high quality nursing research. Included in the discussion are: the structure of nursing education in India; the social context of nurses and nursing in two different regions; governmental and non-governmental considerations regarding the regulation of higher education in India; employment and deployment trends including the effects of the brain drain; the promise of technology; and recent developments in graduate clinical education in nursing. In addition, a plan to catalyze the development of nursing research infrastructure will be presented.
