Abstract:
Registered Nurses (RNs) needed a help to develop research projects from their burning questions. We knew that our RNs were no different than other RNs who are highly motivated to participate in research, but lack confidence in their individual research skills.1 We were aware of road blocks to nurses using research, which have been cited in numerous studies and include insufficient time, lack of mentors, lack of education on the research process, and inaccessibility of literature.2, 3, 4, 5 Since research internships and fellowships have been incorporated successfully in a variety of clinical settings6, 7, 8 we decided to initiate a research fellowship as the vehicle to enable RNs to drive toward a better understanding of research and the scientific process. Four drivers Research Fellows (RFs) were selected on the basis of their driving ability: feasibility of completing a project on their research topic; their cursory literature review; and written recommendations from applicants nurse manager and an RN peer. Drivers receive $$ support for gasoline at 12 hours/month during which time a road map research education is provided by research experts; Experts consult, collaborate, coach and mentor drivers. Lessons learned- Some drivers: follow maps better than others; : use their gas money better than others. : follow the road easier than others. : experience more bumps in the road. : discover more sites along the way. All drivers: lose their fear of driving. : enjoy the road traveled. References: Clifford, C., & Murray, S. (2001).
