Abstract:
Poster Presentation: In 2001, the nursing department at an urban healthcare system began to examine the Magnet standards. The initial analysis revealed that evidence-based practice (EBP) and research was not visible at all levels of nursing in the organization. A workgroup of Clinical Nurse Specialists, staff nurses, nurse educators and nurse managers/directors was formed to develop a plan to meet the Magnet standards. The Nurses' Research Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices (KAP) survey was given and confirmed that the majority of nurses had limited research skills beyond posing a clinical question. During the next five years, a variety of strategies were developed and implemented to help nurses embrace EBP and research. The following strategies will be discussed: Formation of a Nursing Research Council; Educational programs to promote EBP and research; Collaboration with faculty and students from a nursing baccalaureate program; Nursing Research Fellowship; Nursing Research intranet site; Nursing representation on Institutional Review Board and Hospital Research Committee; "Ask the Expert" feature on the intranet and nursing newsletter; Research Roadshow collaboration with the Quality Council; Pilot study with ZynxHealth and Siemens to develop evidence links to online careplans and documentation; Development of a nursing handbook for electronic library resources. The strategies have created a nursing culture where evidence-based practice and research is the expectation rather than the exception. After a five year journey, Magnet designation was achieved and now staff nurses are "scaling new heights" to promote EBP and research.
