Abstract: Aim: We aim to discuss the advantages of supporting clinical nurses' involvement in place-based research in rural health services. Context: Australian health services are currently struggling with increased demand in services from an aging population, chronic diseases and nursing workforce shortages. This impact is amplified in rural and remote regions of Australia. Approach: Investment in place-based clinical nursing research provides opportunity for nursing recruitment, career and leadership development, and retention, while addressing local health issues and creating pathways for implementation of evidence-based practice. Conclusion: Collaboration between rural health services, universities, policy makers and the Rural Health Multidisciplinary Training program will enable the opportunity for establishment and ongoing development of strong research programs in rural health services to address local health issues and workforce needs.
