Abstract:
Nurses at all educational levels can impact nursing outcomes by using evidence-based practice and research, yet many nurses new to research find it daunting. Findings from a 2006 descriptive study which surveyed 112 nurse researchers at U.S. Magnet hospitals reported the top reason quality of patient care was improved was due to evidence-based practice. This study also identified barriers to implementing nursing research programs as fear and inadequate preparation/educational level of nurses (among others). Respondents reported nurses as frightened and resistant and intimidated about research and that one of the least rewarding parts of their job was when abstracts and manuscripts of novice researchers were rejected for publication. One implication of this study was the importance to share the stories and learn the lessons of how novice nurse researchers of different education levels (non-PhD) overcame their fears of nursing research and went on to conduct a study. In 2007, a call for stories was sent to Magnet Hospitals with the intent to write a book to help change the image of nursing research from fear to confidence by showcasing novice nurse researchers who overcame their fear and conducted a research study. This presentation will share some of those stories and lessons to inspire fellow nurses just starting their endeavors in the realm of nursing research to demonstrate that If they could do it, so can I.
