Abstract

Magnet(R) designation requires that nurses be actively involved in activities that lead to obtaining evidence through conducting research. Unfortunately, several barriers limit nurses' ability to engage in research activities, including insufficient resources. This article explains how a community-based hospital implemented a fellowship model to circumvent some of these barriers. Two fellowship positions are described, 1 in research and 1 in library sciences. The method, outcomes, and cost of the fellowship model are discussed.
