Method: A cross‐sectional, correlational design was utilized to achieve the aim of the current study. Result: The total sample size was 200 midwives and nurses. A Pearson's Product Moment correlation coefficient was used to predict the strength of the statistical relationship between the variables. There was a moderately strong relationship between structural empowerment and intent to stay; a low relationship between resilience and intent to stay and a moderately strong relationship between resilience and structural empowerment. Conclusion: The study concludes that structural empowerment, resilience, and intent to stay are variables related to midwives' and nurses' growth in the organization, which provided for further intervention plans by the Saudi ministry of health to assess the workplace environment to enhance midwives' and nurses' empowerment and resilience.

Background: Free and informed consent (FIC) is, first and foremost, a privileged process of exchange between the researcher and the participant, from the beginning to the end of the research and even beyond. The participant will confirm his or her willingness to participate, after having been informed of all aspects of the study. The ELC takes the form of a written, signed and dated form. It must contain 21 items and be placed in the appendices of the brief. Our study has two objectives: to analyze the perception of the ELC among students; and to propose solutions to facilitate the conduct and respect of the participant's dignity. This qualitative study took place from May 19, 2021 to March 10, 2022. Data collection was conducted through focus groups (FGs) and individual interviews in neutral locations based on an evolving interview guide. Transcription was manual and data analysis was performed by grounded theory, after the realization of context of enunciation. Triangulation of data and researchers was respected. Eight GD and two individual interviews (46 subjects) were carried out to reach data saturation. Low interest in respecting the elements of the ELC, different definitions and negative views of the ELC were noted in the statements of the respondents. The majority of the ELC process (70%) does not respect GCP. The understanding and production of the form raises several ethical issues. It is appropriate to train supervisors and students in research ethics, evaluation and monitoring of research protocols.

Nursing research has become increasingly important in health care environment. This paper explores the barriers to research among nurses at the Ministry of National Guard-Health Affairs in Saudi Arabia. This cross-sectional quantitative study was conducted between November and December 2020. The study has utilized a questionnaire comprising of demographic data and a set of perceived barriers categorized into groups, i.e. nurse, institutional and educational barriers. 482 questionnaires were analyzed. The strongest barrier in the nurse category was not knowing how to get involved at 43.1% (n=208; Agree), not having access to mentors with research experience, 45% (n=217; Agree) in the institutional category, and lack of training in research, 46.7% (n=225; Agree) in the educational preparation category. The study showed that multiple factors contributed to lack of engagement in research among this nursing cohort. Therefore, any interventions require a systematic and multiple-pronged approach to support nursing research.
