Stepping into nursing research: an introduction for gastroenterology and hepatology nurses


In this second part of an introduction to research for gastroenterology and hepatology nurses, we aim to build on the first article that introduced the significance and structure of the National Institute for Health and Care Research clinical research landscape in the UK and the importance of nurse engagement. This article introduces possible career pathways available in the profession and specialty. Practical information on how to start research is provided, including an overview of the education, training and support required for a career in research delivery and academic research. Some of the potential barriers to nursing research careers are highlighted, and solutions to navigate a successful career in nursing research are proposed.
