Research is an essential component in professional nursing practice. Although nursing research efforts have increased, there is little evidence of a consistent infrastructure within the community hospital to promote research utilization and the conduct of nursing research. There are multiple mechanisms for nurse administrators to support research efforts in the community hospital. We discuss the value of research and research utilization in the community hospital and suggest some practical strategies for nurse administrators to support research efforts.
