Default Responses needed for PhD survey on nurses

Hi Everyone:

I am conducting a survey for my PhD study which involves registered nurses (RN's) who work in hospitals.

The survey website with more details to the anonymous survey could be found at:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BFKNX7Z

The survey takes less than ten (10) minutes to complete. I really need your help.

Thank you in advance for taking the survey.

My standard response on TOL to this sort of thing is, "How do you know who we are? How could you possibly convince your advisor that you are using a valid sample by getting anonymous respondents from the net? What kind of advisor would accept that anyway?"
Don't take it personally. It's just that I take nursing research very seriously, and this is terrible methodology. I just went there and disclaimer notwithstanding, I could have answered it, and though I haven't worked in a hospital in donkey's years (I'm a legal nurse consultant) you'd never know the difference.
Why not just, like, go to a hospital and pass out paper copies of your survey to real nurses employed there, and then hire some nursing undergrad to enter them into your statistics software?

I did fill it out for you. I found it interesting. I understand why you want totally unbiased opinions I have had to do research studies in school. Good luck with your paper.


Don't be a stranger. Come back and let us know the results.

I happen to agree with both GrnTea and Dutch Girl... Strange perhaps, but here's the thing: it's true that you cannot verify the source of your data collection. Therefore, it does limit the credibility of the results. However, for the sake of curiosity, discussion, and maybe even the beginnings of the development of a more "official" research project... I think it's worthwhile. I don't think that this is going to result in any earth-shattering changes within registered nurses' core curriculum....but I do think it's an interesting concept worth exploring. I wish you well in your endeavor...and I, too, completed it.
