Abstract:
Paper Presentation: Nursing research guides evidence based practice and supports quality nursing care. Nurses report lack of time, resources, education and funding as roadblocks to participating in research activities. The ability to promote and conduct nursing research activities is fostered through a nursing research fellowship program. A fellowship program provides an opportunity to guide nurses through the research process. A fellowship program responds to research barriers by providing time, education and mentoring focused on the research journey. Nurses provided with the opportunity to participate in a fellowship program have demonstrated growth and leadership skill development. Participation by staff nurses in a fellowship program strengthens the framework that sustains future nursing research activities. A funded fellowship program was developed at our community hospital to eliminate the barriers preventing bedside nurses from participating in research. Four nurses were selected through an interview process, and allocated sixteen hours per month for one year to work on a clinical research question. In addition, four nurses were allocated eight hours per month for a year, to work on an evidence- based practice project. Workshops were created to provide education on the research process. Mentors were identified to support the fellowship participants as they journeyed through the research process. After one year, the fellowship has demonstrated success in our community hospital. All participants have completed their projects. All of the projects have increased research awareness for the hospital nursing staff and some of the projects have led to significant practice changes.
