The evidence-based practice movement has highlighted the importance of translating research evidence into practice. However, the gap between research and practice points to the existence of significant barriers to research use.

Based on these findings, the authors discuss and make recommendations to assist nurse administrators in overcoming universally reported barriers to research use.
