Abstract

Aim:
To explore the collaborative nature of an international research project with other advanced practice nurse researchers and critically analyse the process.

Background:
Research within the nursing community is recognized internationally as important to ensure that nurses participate in cutting-edge health care and promote evidence-based practices, yet there is little detail found in literature on how a successful collaborative relationship is initiated and conducted in advanced practice research.

Design:
Discussion paper: The purpose of this paper is to discuss the process of collaboration on a research study among advanced practice nurses from four countries who are members of an international organization.

Implications for Nursing:
The collaborative process in international nursing research can be challenging and rewarding. It is important to remember that there is a relationship between the complexity of the study and the time required to complete it. Keys to success include following established guidelines.

Conclusion:
This project was a valuable experience in developing collaborative relationships as well as creating partnerships for future research to build on the knowledge gained. The authors' linkages to universities facilitated their participation in the research and completion of the ethical review processes. The use of social media and university resources was indispensable.
