This recent tweet by the President of the Royal College of Nursing highlighted concern about the perennial lack of funding and support for nurses to pursue clinical academic careers. Although there are multiple interpretations of what ‘participating in research’ actually consists of, it is apparent that research activity is still undervalued and under‐resourced in nursing. The development of an integrated clinical academic (ICA) career pathway in nursing in the past decade has been underpinned by the growing academisation and research culture of both nursing education and clinical practice, highlighted in the Willis Report (Health Education England, 2015).
