Top leaders from nationally ranked hospital write new book for all nurses

INDIANAPOLIS — Does your health care organization encourage nurses to continue their education? Three top leaders from the highly ranked Massachusetts General Hospital believe that continuing education is crucial for nurse clinicians, leaders, administrators, educators, researchers, and students to succeed.

Fostering a Research Intensive Organization: An Interdisciplinary Approach for Nurses from Massachusetts General Hospital, the hospital that is consistently ranked as one of the nation’s top hospitals by U.S. News & World Report, was written and edited by Jeanette Ives Erickson, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN; Marianne Ditomassi, DNP, MBA, RN; and Dorothy Jones, EdD, RN, FAAN, FNI.

Published by the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), this book addresses how a strong nursing research agenda can impact patient care and influence the redesign of services needed to effectively respond to a changing health care environment. It provides a comprehensive review to support the practice environment as an important place to advance nursing science through research.

The authors offer examples from their experiences by demonstrating nursing research agendas, sharing tips for developing new funding sources and partnerships, and discussing how to impart ideas for engagement in multidisciplinary research activities.

“In our new book we discuss the support for and the conduct of research applicable to nurses’ professional and personal development, demonstrating how to design a research infrastructure and provide the resources, support, and organizational commitment needed to promote research in practice settings,” Erickson said. “We felt sharing ideas about mentoring, evidence-based practice, methods and evaluation, instrument development, and postdoctoral fellowships were important and rarely discussed. Clinicians with a range of research expertise will find discussions about the support for and the conduct of research applicable to their professional and personal development.”
