Abstract

Practicing nurses who have special expertise concerning clinical problems generally have minimal involvement in clinical nursing research. As a step toward increasing their research participation and, therefore, the relevancy of clinical studies, this study surveyed 1,217 nurses employed at nine health care agencies concerning their research attitudes, work environment, and research involvement. Descriptive statistics indicated that nurses value nursing research and want more time for research-related activities. Discriminant function analysis revealed that prior research instruction, awareness of support for research, and positive attitudes toward research were predictive of nurses' participation in research activities.
