Abstract:
Purpose: The Nursing Research Fellowship Program was initiated to engage nurses in the nursing research process to develop nursing science, improve patient outcomes and create a culture that encourages nurses to question nursing practice. Program objectives include developing fellows' knowledge and skills in nursing research and evidence-based nursing practice (EBNP) processes, and to support fellows in the development, implementation and dissemination of nursing research projects or evidence-based nursing initiatives central to the advancement of nursing interventions aimed at improving patient outcomes.

Method: Through a private donation for development of nursing research in 2007, the Nursing Research Council implemented the Nursing Research Fellowship Program. The program was designed to support education, release time and expenses associated with the conduct of proposed nursing research or evidence-based practice projects. The program was built upon a mentoring model with key components including: group workshops, one-to-one mentored sessions and objective-driven individual efforts designed to aid in project/initiative design, implementation, completion and dissemination.

Findings: In year one 6 fellows were selected and conducted primary nursing research (2) and EBNP (4) initiatives involving diverse populations, patient outcomes and clinical questions. First year fellows' projects resulted in significant improvements in patient outcomes and in actual and potential cost savings for the organization. n year two of the program, 7 fellows were selected to address EBNP initiatives consistent with organizational goals and priorities, and projects are in-progress.

Discussion: The program has been successful in supporting nurses from associate's degree to master's degree in nursing research and EBNP at the point of care and to build capacity for future nursing research and evidence-based practice activities. In response to the multitude of quality initiatives facing the organization and the health care environment, the program has presently taken an EBNP focus to fully operationalize an "Evidence Environment".
