Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This session will provide the study results of 112 nurse researchers and the strategies, barriers and facilitators to implementing nursing research programs in Magnet hospitals. ABSTRACT/Aims: The research question for this study was, how do Magnet hospitals implement nursing research programs? The purpose of this study was to assess nurse researchers at Magnet hospitals and have them describe strategies, barriers and facilitators they experienced with implementing nursing research programs. Methods: This non-experimental, descriptive study used a 39 item self-report electronic questionnaire comprised of four sections: general questions, roles and activities, communication and demographics. An invitational letter was sent via electronic mail to 215 nurse researchers on the AACN Magnet Nurse Researcher List Serve. Open ended questions addressed barriers and facilitators for implementation of these programs. Quantitative data was analyzed using SPSS. Qualitative data were analyzed and themes identified Results: A response rate of 52% (N=112) provided relevant information on the state of nursing research at these Magnet hospitals including: the number of nursing research studies conducted in 2006, the clinical areas involved in the studies, the collaborating disciplines, the topics of research education most needed, and the most rewarding experiences of the nurse researchers. Conclusions: Although barriers exist for implementing nursing research programs in Magnet hospitals, they are overcome and clinical studies are being done by staff nurses. This offers opportunities for mentoring and replication of studies to broaden the foundation of clinical nursing studies. This study is relevant because of the increasing number of hospitals seeking Magnet accreditation, the required focus on clinical research and the identification of the numbers and types of studies being done by nurses in hospitals versus academia.
