This article explores the gap that currently exists between nursing research and nursing practice. The aim is to promote the conversion of new knowledge into practical innovations. Barriers to research utilization in practice settings come from both the academic and clinical arenas. Innovative models and strategies are needed to overcome these barriers. The purposes and value of research utilization and the clinical and academic strategies that facilitate research are discussed. Supporting clinical studies are provided as exemplars.
