A focus group study was conducted to describe bachelor of science-prepared registered nurses' (n = 10) use of research in their everyday practice. Results indicate that participants feel prepared to use research upon entry into the workforce and do so to better patient care. However, research use is both positively and negatively affected by nursing leadership and the research culture of the workplace. The author includes implications for nursing professional development specialists and educators.
