Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This session will describe a partnership between a Magnet designated hospital, a local chapter of Sigma Theta Tau and healthcare organizations in the community to establish a local Nursing Research Collaborative (NRC). Through the NRC students, faculty, and community-based nurses attend educational events on research and the clinical application of nursing research. ABSTRACT: In 2006, a designated MagnetTM hospital partnered with a local chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) and other healthcare organizations in the community to establish a local Nursing Research Collaborative (NRC). The mission of the NRC is to link community resources (hospital and medical practices), and academic resources for the purpose of advancing nursing research throughout the region. The programs offered by the NRC are for hospital and community nurses, graduate and undergraduate nursing students, and faculty. In cooperation with all project partners educational research events were planned and conducted for the year and workshop content was developed that met the learning needs of both the beginning and advanced nurse researcher. The NRC partners recognized exemplary research activities through the presentation of Nursing Research Posters held in April. To address sustainability, the NRC applied for and was awarded a 2-year, $46,000.00 University Partnership Grant. This funding allowed for the continuation of the NRC including the provision of video streaming equipment and a Grant Assistant. Sustainability was addressed through the utilization of hospital resources (meeting spaces, medical facility speakers, advertising funding etc). Local hospitals have pledged more than $33,000.00 in support to continue the NRC for the next two years. The first NRC event was held in January of 2006 with participants attending five one-hour seminars that examined the key elements of nursing research. The next event was the "Celebration of Nursing Research Poster Presentation" hosted by the university in April. Twenty-eight posters were submitted with two awards presented: the "Nurse Researcher of the Year", an award for completed nursing research and the "Vision Award", an award given for the student beginning research. In February 2007 the NRC sponsored the second nursing research workshop. Fifty-five community nurses, nursing students, and faculty were in attendance. Fifty posters entries were accepted for the second Poster Presentation held on April 19, 2007. Project outcomes were disseminated through hospital research councils, professional meetings, and STTI chapter publications. The NRC received the Showcase of Regional Excellence award and the International Research Advancement Award from STTI for their role in advancing the society's strategic direction of knowledge, leadership, service and community.
