Transferring and applying the knowledge is a critical and complex method. Production of research-based knowledge in nursing is increasing but the trend of its practical usage is slow. This study tries to determine the factors affecting the individual research transfer among educators and faculty members in medical science universities, Iran. Materials & Methods: This descriptive correlation study was conducted using a clustered sampling of 279 nurses working in Medical Sciences Universities, Iran. The data were gathered using tools developed by Knott & Wildavsky (1980), and Landry et al (2003), and they were analyzed using SPSS, v13. Results: The results showed that at the individual level, the highest activity was presenting and participating at the conference, the lowest participation was in "commercial activities". Factors as "the research based on consumer needs" and "the years served as nursing instructor" had statistically significant relationship with personal research transfer performance (P< 0/05). Conclusion: Findings indicate that the instructor’s individual performance in research transfer was statistically significant correlation with some factors. So it is necessary to promote and encourage the performances but also considering determinants and intervening factors.
