Background: The norms by which nursing education and research have been conducted are changing More nursing schools are offering online and blended online/face-to-face programs with a shift in research from individual endeavors to a team-based approach. The changing landscape of nursing education and research requires more planning and adherence to schedules and timelines. A framework outlining efficient means to approach team-based nursing research in the academic setting that is reflective of the emerging blended environment is needed. Purpose: This paper discusses the development of the Condensed Heuristic Academic Research Model (CHARM) framework and shares the experiences of one research team's use of the model in completing a five-component research project in one academic semester. Discussion: Employment of the framework facilitates the development of time-management, scholarship, mentorship, and collaborative skills for emerging nurse resarchers, current scientists, and faculty members. Conclusion: The CHARM framework is a model that addresses the needs of emerging and experienced nurse researchers and fits well within the new digital and in-person environment of nursing research and education.
