Effective programs that support research, scholarship, and evidence-based practice are critical in both the service and academic sectors. Nurse executives are interested in having nurses participate and lead interdisciplinary teams of healthcare providers and biomedical research. In academic medical centers and community teaching hospitals where a school of nursing is not present, it is crucial that nurse researchers and clinicians come together to participate in interdisciplinary research and pose research questions promoting high-quality patient care. The creation of a nursing research program in a large cancer center that focuses on the conduct of research and on mentoring, consultation, and research review processes are described, and the application to various settings is discussed.
