Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: The transition to evidence based practice is a journey that often leads to the need for original nursing research to answer important clinical practice questions. Time and human resources have remained two of the most common barriers to conducting research. One nearby university requires all undergraduate nursing students to take an introductory nursing research course. This course provides for a 2 hour/week, 14 week experiential component. For the past five years, students have worked with a Nursing Research Facilitator (NRF) at the hospital as a part of this course. After an orientation, students are assigned as research assistants to various nursing teams currently conducting research. Activities have included screening subjects for eligibility, obtaining informed consent, providing study interventions, collecting and analyzing data, and disseminating information by way of a Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference« presentation. Examples of nurse driven studies in which students have participated include the impact of repositioning slings on skin, an evaluation of an Alcohol Withdrawal care management guide, the exploration of factors related to improving sleep on a step-down unit, and evaluation of a Withdrawal of Care protocol on the quality of end-of-life in critically ill patients. Both students and nurse researchers report that the experiences are positive. Since the beginning of this collaboration, students have made major contributions leading to the success of numerous nurse-driven research studies including expediting completion of the research, and developing abstracts for presentation at research conferences and manuscripts for publication.
