Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This presentation will describe how Advanced Practice Nurses provided leadership and formed creative, mentoring partnerships with clinical nurses to implement initiatives supportive of evidence-based practice and use of nursing research at the bedside. ABSTRACT: During our journey to Magnet, advanced practice nurses, who facilitated the development of the research council, provided leadership and mentoring partnerships with clinical nurses to implement best practice initiatives at the bedside. When our journey began, there was little emphasis on nursing research and the use of evidence to make clinical decisions. As we intentionally implemented the Forces of Magnetism, we realized that we needed to develop processes to encourage clinical nurses to be more involved in reading and evaluating nursing research literature. Further, we realized that advanced practice nurses can play a major role in nurturing and mentoring clinical nurses in their learning. This presentation outlines our steps in creating a Nursing Research Council, overcoming initial barriers, and developing specific projects that led to greater awareness and involvement of clinical nurses regarding nursing research and best practices support. Our initiatives included: 1) developing specific goals for the council; 2) working strategically with nursing leadership to obtain visible support for nursing research; 3) hiring a doctorally prepared Nurse Researcher; 4) facilitating and funding nursing research internships; 5) offering classes on evidence based practice and a "Translating Research into Practice" series; 6) collaborating with the School of Nursing; 7) partnering with a clinical librarian; 8) publishing a quarterly synthesis of relevant nursing studies, summarized by clinical nurses; 9) implementing an Annual Nursing Science Symposium, with a keynote speaker and poster presentations; 10) implementing an annual nursing research council retreat; and 11) providing leadership and role modeling by the Nurse Researcher and advanced practice nurses. Along the journey, clinical staff nurses became more empowered in the use of evidence based practices. A number of nursing research internships led to staff nurses becoming excited about a clinical topic and testing the evidence at the bedside. Work with the Nurse Researcher is leading to new initiatives and opportunities for staff. Future plans are based on the Nursing Research Council's new strategic plan and greater involvement of staff in both doing and disseminating the outcomes of evidence based nursing practice and nursing research.
