Increasingly, nursing research is considered essential to the achievement of high-quality patient care and outcomes. Inquiry and science are fundamental to raising the bar in nursing practice, improving the patient experience, and enhancing patient outcomes. Acute care hospital environments provide excellent settings for clinical nurses to conduct research that improves quality and patient safety. Magnet® model components require that organizations develop a culture that promotes scientific inquiry and have a successful and sustainable robust nursing research program. Evidence-based practice (EBP) has taken a strong hold in nursing curricula and among frontline nurses across the country. Nurses are becoming familiar with searching the literature to find answers to clinical questions and are no longer satisfied with the "this is the way we've always done it" approach. Frontline nursing staff members who express interest in research are instrumental for any organization to build research capacity.
