The Nursing Research Education Committee, part of the Nursing Research Council in a large tertiary care healthcare system, was developed to engage direct care nurses in research activities. This article describes several programs undertaken to meet this goal and details the most current: the development of a Web-based service, the Nursing Research Journal Watch. This innovative service was designed to raise staff awareness of nursing research. Staff development educators will learn how the Nursing Research Journal Watch was developed, launched, and evaluated for consideration in their own institutions.
