There are multiple opportunities and options to improve nurses' engagement with research and evidence-based practice. Nursing grand rounds, in their various guises, are one such initiative. A large regional health service in North Queensland, Australia, introduced nursing grand rounds in late 2010 as a professional development activity. This article discusses the success of the initiative, as evaluated by the attendees and as assessed by members of the organizing group. One notable aspect of the initiative is that it allows both nurses working in small rural and remote facilities and nurses working in the regional city to participate in the presentations. Aspects of the initiative that require continued consideration to ensure the sustainability of nursing grand rounds are identified.
