Inside the Forces: Get a stamp of approval for your research project

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, November 11, 2008

As staff nurses begin to conduct research projects to meet expectations for Force of Magnetism 6: Quality of care, they need to get their project approved by the institutional review board (IRB). Presenting a research idea to the IRB involves a lot of documentation, as the committee needs to understand exactly what is being proposed before they can weigh considerations and effects. Provide the IRB the following information so they can receive an accurate view of your idea and what it entails:

  1. Cover sheet
  2. Background or introduction of the study
  3. Objectives of the study
  4. Significance of the study (e.g., what are the contributions to the discipline of nursing?)
  5. Methods (e.g., how will data be collected, what is the duration of the study, etc.)
  6. Consent form (e.g., has the study been fully explained to the potential subjects?)
