Abstract:
Purpose: Inspiring and building a culture where nursing practice is evidence-based and where nurses are engaged in research projects is an important step to achieving and maintaining ANCC Magnet Recognition Program designation. Strategies for organizations to transform their culture from "the way we have always done it" to one of "where's the evidence" or "let's do a study to find out" are essential in attaining excellence in nursing practice and patient outcomes. This presentation will share strategic steps taken by a large academic medical center, on the Journey to Nursing Excellence, to transform their culture in eighteen months. Method: Theory will be shared to immolate the transition from a culture of accommodation (bedside nurses and nurse researchers each have their own culture and are unrelated) to a culture of assimilation (bedside nurses and nurse researchers are equal participants in research projects). Step by step strategies for transforming the culture will be shared along with best practices from the Advisory Board. Also lessons learned along this journey and future innovations will be discussed. Findings: Shands Jacksonville Medical Center (SJAX), a 699 bed academic medical center, set out to transform their culture to one where research was interwoven into everyday practice and expectations for our > 1300 nurses. In eighteen months, SJAX has grown from two (2) research studies to over thirty (30). Discussion: Transforming culture can be a daunting task, in particular, when it is related to nursing research. Bedside nurses, however, often feel intimidated by the research process and do not feel that they have authority to change their practice. Making research and evidence-based practice accessible and fun is possible if strategically planned for and if the very nurses we hope to inspire are truly engaged throughout the process.
