The purpose of the Research thru Academic-Clinical Partnerships RIG is to build regional collaboratives and MNRS resources that will facilitate the start-up, conduct, translation and dissemination of nursing research and evidence-based practices (EBP).

Who Should Join?

Overall/Long Term Goals

  • Continue descriptive nursing research study.  Pursue MNRS permission to use contact list to invite ALL MNRS members to participate.
  • Subcommittee will develop a discussion format for clinical/institutional and academic student DNP projects.  This format will be included in 2018-19 RIG telephone conference meetings.
  • The “Partnership Definition” subcommittee will continue its work during this next year and will report during telephone conference meetings.

3 Year Goals

  • To build or strengthen roles in non-academic centers for nurse scientists; to facilitate: translation of EBP; mechanisms to sustain EBP into clinical/practice settings; and conduct of research focused on how to quickly accelerate the translation of research findings into real world settings.
  • To assist MNRS to advance the "future of nursing" based on IOM report's research mission.
  • To enhance and maximize collaboration between academia and clinical nurse scientists; clinical/academic nurse scientists from multiple sites; nurse scientists with interdisciplinary healthcare providers/specialists and nurse scientists with corporate sponsors; etc. to enrich research results and assist in more generalizable research findings.
