A survey of nurses is part of a Regent University doctoral project being conducted by VA Chaplain Priscilla Mondt that seeks to discover positive elements of nursing in order to design proactive programs to address stressors effecting nurses. It should take between 10 and 20 minutes to complete. For complete anonymity, the survey is coded to prevent tracking of IP addresses. Click on this link. When you are finished, please pass the link on to another nurse that might be willing to also contribute to the study. The researcher may be contacted at: email@example.com
The Fellowship and CPE Curriculum Development Grant online applications to integrate research literacy into programs is open on the Transforming Chaplaincy website. 32 grants will be awarded in the second cycle of grants selected in 2017.
