Abstract:
Purpose: To provide a motivational and inspirational presentation which demonstrates via storytelling, how non-doctoral prepared nurses in clinical settings overcame their fears of research and went on to conduct nursing research studies. Method: Flyers entitled "Call for Stories" were disseminated to nurses who attended the fear to complete their research by telling their stories and including a copy of their research abstract into a book with hope that others reading the book would see that "If they could do it, so can I". Findings: Approximately 70 non-doctoral nurses from 14 states and the District of Columbia contributed a "story" of how they overcame their fear of research along with a copy of an abstract of their IRB approved research study. Eight stories are related to evidence-based practice and the research journey, 12 stories and abstracts focus on medical-surgical nursing and 37 stories and abstracts relate to nursing specialties that include: emergency services, end-of-life care, informatics, intensive care, maternal and child health, neonatal intensive care, oncology, orthopedics, pediatrics and post-op anesthesia care. Discussion: These stories are an outcome from a finding of a 2007 study done which identified one of the biggest barriers to research was fear and that staff were "frightened and resistant" and "intimidated" about research. The authors compiled the stories and abstracts into a book to serve as a motivational resource for novice researchers. The authors would like to read passages from some of these stories and share the insights and suggestions provided by the nurses who contributed their stories. These stories are inspirational and reinforce the important role of nurse researchers as mentors.
