Abstract:
Purpose: This IRB approved study assessed nurse researchers at Magnet hospitals to describe strategies they used to implement nursing research programs. Method: This non-experimental, cross sectional descriptive study utilized 39 items in a self-report electronic questionnaire comprised of four sections: general questions, roles and activities, communication and demographics. An invitational letter was sent via electronic mail to a purposive sample of 215 nurse researchers who were listed on the 2007 AACN Magnet Nurse Researcher List Serve. Statistical analysis was done with SPSS version 11.0. Findings: With a 52% response rate (N=112) nurse researchers reported that 92% of them had active roles with nursing research councils; 75% reported their nurse-led studies were interdisciplinary and 71% identified mentoring as their main activity. Fifty percent (50%) of respondents reported they held doctoral degrees. Other findings include the resources used by the researchers for their research programs as well as the methods for internal and external dissemination of their study findings. The top three reported barriers to implementing their research programs were: fear, time and, money. The top three facilitators for implementing their programs were: support of CNOs, mentoring and collaborative relationships. Discussion: Although barriers exist for implementing nursing research programs in Magnet hospitals, they are overcome and many clinical studies are being done by staff nurses. This offers opportunities for mentoring and replication of studies to broaden the foundation of clinical nursing studies. This study is relevant because of the increasing number of hospitals seeking Magnet accreditation, the required focus on clinical research and the identification of the numbers and types of studies being done by nurses in hospitals versus academia.
