APRN pandemic Survey

Posted 2 months ago by Michelle Wade

Good morning All

I wanted to share with you a request to participate in a national APRN practice survey (details below).  Tracey is working with the Co-PIs on this project as part of a research practicum. Throughout the summer, the research team is continuing its recruitment efforts through social media, email, etc.,   While some of the questions pertain more to APRNs working in states with Reduced/Restricted Practice Authority, there are many of importance to those practicing in Full Practice Authority states, like Vermont and NH. Everyone’s time and insights are greatly appreciated! 

A U.S. national survey was launched in early June to assess the impact of APRN practice restrictions and the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on APRN practice.  

The purposes of the study are to: 1) describe state practice barriers,  2) determine the effect of COVID-19 pandemic-related suspension of all practice restrictions or waiver of select practice agreement requirements in states with reduced or restricted practice, and 3) explore the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on APRN practice. 

Please consider participating in this brief, anonymous, voluntary, IRB reviewed survey!   https://redcap.link/nationalAPRNSurvey
