26 Results Increase in research studies by nurses done at each Magnet hospital A rise in everyday use of the evidence at the patient bedside by nurses More nurse authors and library users of e-resources Heightened visibility of the library as a partner in the process of becoming and sustaining Magnet hospital status. Validation of the hospital library as a Magnet force in two hospitals.

27 My anonymous quote in the article by Cheryl Dee and Ellen E. Stanley Nurses information needs: nurses and hospital librarians perspectives Journal of Hospital Librarianship 5 (2) 1-12, 2005 Let them in the door, first of all. Be very patient with their learning needs/styles. Remember they learn by doing; its the nature of nursing. And dont forget these are not just bothersome nursing students (or nurses who are going back to school who are computer phobic. These are the nurses who will be in power in your organization and they have long memories of your helpfulness when they were beginning their careers. At least it has been a winning strategy in our hospitals. Also when I get sick, I want smart nurses taking care of me!
