Evidence-based care and the expanded role of the nurse are inexorably linked. Facets of this are found in every specialist area of nursing. Children's nurses are no exception and they have proved their commitment to family-centred care over a period of many years. However, within the ranks of nurse educationalists now employed by the universities and not the NHS new tensions have emerged. The research-led ethos of the universities demands that nurses demonstrate expertise in the field of scientific enquiry. Although the philosophy of caring and research are not incongruent, there exists the potential that family empowerment may take a back seat to academic prowess. This article examines the background to this dilemma.
