[ENA Annual Conference - Evidence-based Practice Presentation]

Purpose: Research is the helm from which the future of nursing is guided. It allows nurses to validate their practice, as well as explore new methods and therapies which can be utilized to ensure best practice is delivered at the bedside. The area of bedside nursing research is extremely important yet it is observed that this type of research is under utilized and has room to expand. In an attempt to foster such research, a presentation was developed and delivered to assist the nurse who is willing to venture down the path of bedside nursing research.

Design: This evidence-based presentation was offered as part of a structured program to enhance the professional development of nursing staff throughout the presenting organization.

Setting: The presenting organization is an academic, community Magnet health network with a Level I Trauma Center and two additional Emergency Departments.

Participants: This presentation to spur nursing research was offered to all staff throughout the presenting organization, with a focus on the bedside nurse.

Methods: This presentation explores building a talented nursing research team whose presence ensures not only a quality research study but an opportunity to learn how to develop a nursing research study first hand. Additional learnings include such things as applying for a grant, submission for IRB approval, publication, oral and poster presentation and, most importantly, the cultivation of practice validation or change. This presentation was constructed from the personal experience of a team of novice bedside nurse researchers in a community, academic Magnet hospital.

Results: The research project which this presentation was derived from is in the stage of data analysis. The institution's IRB recognized the team's excellent proposal by utilizing it as the model for all other IRB submissions. The team was also recognized regionally by the Eastern Nursing Research Society by accepting a poster presentation on the project while it remained in itÆs infancy and data remained unavailable.

Implications: As the culture of nursing continues to change, nurses find themselves challenged with the new expectation of research involvement. This presentation reassures nurses and managers alike that a master's degree in research is not necessary. As management teams guide their nurses toward research participation, they should be able to identify the resources which more than likely already exist within their health care teams. This presentation acts as a road map which will guide nurses in the direction of completing comprehensive and high quality research projects worthy of publication, poster and oral presentation, as well as a sound research study that will validate or change current nursing practices.
