Inside the program: Empower nurses to conduct research

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, April 14, 2009

As organizations pursue ANCC Magnet Recognition Program® designation or redesignation, it’s imperative that staff nurses are involved in research projects. Otherwise, you will not be able to meet expectations for Component IV: New knowledge, innovations, and improvements and Component V: Empirical outcomes. Begin motivating staff nurses and creating a successful research program by empowering your nurses.

During HCPro’s March 10 audio conference, “Build a Nursing Research Culture: Practical Strategies to Implement a Program and Engage Nurses,” Marquetta Flaugher, ARNP-BC, DSN, an advanced practice nurse at Bay Pines VA Healthcare System, presented four ways to begin empowering your nurses:

  • Walk nurses through a research application
  • Show nurses how to do a literature review or where to go to get a literature review
  • Show nurses how to develop a proposal for institutional review board submission
  • Assist nurses on ways to publish their research findings
