Summary This research study explored nurse academics' perceptions and experiences of scholarship and research. Interviews were carried out with 20 nurse academics in four Australian states. A grounded theory approach was used to explore issues they faced. The paper discusses how academics engaged in research and scholarship integrate it into their work practices. The participants spoke of problems encountered, such as the difficulty of gaining higher degrees whilst undertaking additional research. They indicated they felt under significant pressure to publish. The organisational structures that a small number of institutions put in place to facilitate the development of a scholarly research culture are illustrated.
