Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: In today's healthcare environment it is essential for nurse leaders to provide an opportunity for the direct care nurse to understand and translate nursing research into clinical practice. Innovative and creative programs need to be developed that enable the direct care nurse to conduct high-quality nursing research. In everyday practice, direct care nurses identify issues that are clinically relevant and appropriate for research. However, the majority of nurses lack the education and expertise in research methods to successfully conduct sound research. To succeed in conducting research, nurses must be partnered with an experienced researcher who can provide them guidance regarding research methods. In 2005, Inova Loudoun Hospital (ILH) developed the Nurse Research Internship Program (NRIP) allowing direct care nurses to conduct evidence-based nursing research, foster professional development, promote quality patient care, and improve patient outcomes. The NRIP enables a direct care nurse to work exclusively on nursing research during a designated time period. The Nurse Research Intern (NRI) works with the Director of Nursing Research to develop a nursing research study to improve outcomes in their practice area. The NRI also assists the Director of Nursing Research and the Research Council in identifying current practice issues, reviewing proposed research studies, and translating research findings into clinical practice. In May, 2006 ILH was awarded Magnet designation. In the designation phone call, the NRIP was acclaimed as being a creative and innovative way to allow direct care nurses to learn the research process and to develop and conduct sound nursing research.
