Inside scoop from our experts: Give the nursing research council bylaws

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, October 28, 2008

This week, a reader asks for an example of what bylaws may look like for a nursing research council. Read the response below from our advisor, Meryl Montgomery, RN, MSN, from Macon, GA.

Q: Can you please show me an example of what bylaws may look like for a nursing research council?

A: You want your bylaws to reflect the role of your nursing research council. The nursing research council should support all nursing research projects and provide research education. Thus, your nursing research council bylaws could state the following:

  • Provides mentoring, education, and support of nurses in the nursing research process.
  • Serves as consultant to the practice and quality councils for assistance with research-based issues or projects that involve nursing.
  • Develops, implements, and evaluates education related to research and evidence-based practice (e.g., nursing orientation, case studies, etc.)
  • Provides feedback and recommendations related to projects submitted for approval for research.
  • Approves applications for nursing research and collaborates with applicant and institutional review board to facilitate implementation of project.
  • Develops, implements, and monitors grant/funding to support bedside nursing research.
