Abstract:
The Nursing Research Fellowship (NRF) program is a unique opportunity for nurses to study research questions of interest and move forward on the Clinical Nurse Advancement System. The NRF program provides assistance with research method, design, data collection, and analysis. Participation in the fellowship program helps develop a nurse's research skills, knowledge, and confidence with research. The NRF is currently a two-year program. Nurses accepted into the program attend a monthly class and are assigned a mentor from the Department of Nursing Research & EBP. Currently, a nurse applies to the program by completing an application form and an interview with nursing research staff. Eligibility for the NRF program includes: one or more years of employment at the sponsoring hospital; a Bachelor's degree in nursing or higher; a current nursing research project or idea; an interest in research; and, a letter of support from an immediate supervisor. At the end of the first year, the fellows are expected to complete a research proposal, complete the process of obtaining human subjects approval, and present their proposal at the Annual Nursing Research Conference. During the second year, the fellows are expected to attend monthly classes; meet with their mentor regularly, complete data collection and data analysis, and disseminate their findings. Many lessons have been learned over the past five years. These lessons have created an opportunity to re-evaluate the NRF program and examine and implement new ideas to continue creating successful nurse researchers and research champions.
