Abstract

With so few nurse scientists, it is important to increase the research activities of nurses. A nurse scientist and a librarian investigated if increasing library skills in a hospital-based research internship increases nurses' scholarship. Library-related content was added throughout the internship; interns were surveyed to measure specific skills. All interns improved their skills and valued librarians. Most interns conducted literature searches and utilized library resources. Research internships increased nurses' capacity for library-related skills.
