Conducting research and using evidence-based practice play a major role in achieving Magnet status, the sought-after recognition awarded by the American Nurses Credentialing Center to healthcare institutions that exhibit nursing excellence. The authors present a synopsis of a conference sponsored by a Sigma Theta Tau International consortium in which a panel of nurse leaders distinguishes between research and evidence-based practice and discusses strategies to achieve both in the journey to Magnet status.
