Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Background: As more and more hospitals seek Magnet Recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) they are starting to develop nursing research programs. Research is a very strong focus woven throughout the forces of magnetism. Often they need mentoring and resources from Magnet facilities where research programs are already in place. Purpose of Presentation: To share the story of two hospitals collaborative partnership regarding the institutional mentoring of research. Methods: The Research Nurse Coordinator from a Magnet accredited acute care facility developed a creative partnership with a small community hospital seeking Magnet recognition. An institutional mentoring program regarding research and Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) was formed and included meeting with the newly formed research committee, a presentation on EBP several conference calls and electronic mentoring with the Research Committee Chair. Staff from the small community hospital was invited to attend the Clinical Scholar Program (CSP) at the larger, Magnet facility where they are developing several research projects and partnered with a research mentor. Results: The community hospital has strong support for research from their administrators and is dedicated to creating a culture of inquiry to offer best practices. There is a research committee in place with a clearly defined mission and goals. Research projects are being conducted within that hospital with ongoing mentoring from the larger Magnet facility. Implications: Graduates of the CSP will become EBP champions within their community hospital, serving as mentors to staff to guide best practices. Mentoring from the Magnet facility will continue as needed.
