Assessment of nursing research accomplishments revealed three hallmarks of success: (1) identification of the boundaries of nursing research, (2) explication of the types of research needed by the professional discipline of nursing, and (3) delineation of research activities appropriate for nurses according to educational preparation. Assessment of the current state of nursing research resulted in identification of three major issues: (1) elimination of obstacles to nursing research, (2) acceptance of multiple modes of inquiry, and (3) utilization of nursing research findings in clinical practice. The successful resolution of these issues should represent three future hallmarks of success in nursing research.
