In connection with the increasing demands for quality nursing care and the growing requirements concerning the education of nurses, the necessity for nurses to participate in nursing research appears ever more urgent. To date, the nursing practice has been based rather on established standard methods and the results of foreign research studies have not been utilised sufficiently. Therefore we wanted to determine to what extent the nurses in practice participate in research activities and which forms of research they are engaged in. The aim of the study was to describe in which way the nurses in the Czech Republic take part in the scientific-research activities, what type of research they are usually engaged in, whether they have feedback information about these research studies and their results, and whether they utilise the research results in their work.
