School Nurse Participants Needed for Nationwide Study
Drs. Yonkaitis (Illinois) and Willgerodt (Washington) are seeking assistance for a Delphi project being conducted to identify the knowledge domains necessary to educate school nurses for professional practice. They are looking for practicing nurses, nurse administrators and nurse educators to provide expert opinions in this area.
Participation would include approximately 3 rounds of surveys to identify and prioritize learning characteristics necessary to prepare school nurses for practice. Folks who complete all rounds will receive a $40 gift card as a token of appreciation for their time. The study has received IRB approval (exempt) from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
We are looking for school nurses from across the United States who:
- Have practiced within the last three years as a school nurse, a school nurse educator, or a school nurse supervisor
- Hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree in nursing
- Have a minimum of 2 years’ experience as a school nurse
