Nurse researchers have made considerable contributions to the science of nursing. Conducting studies in the clinical environment is the best way to determine what interventions are most effective. Because most research is conducted by nurses from academic settings, they often are not viewed as credible by nurses in clinical practice, nor are they accepted readily into the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) to conduct research. This article addresses the barriers to implementing and conducting studies in the NICU setting, and provides suggestions for creating collaborative and mutually satisfying relationships between nurse researchers and healthcare staff in the NICU. Partnerships built on mutual respect are necessary to have successful research outcomes, and to continue to build knowledge for the best neonatal care.
