Dear Advanced Practice Nursing Colleague,

I am conducting a research study on the professional, workplace and personal factors that may affect an advanced practice nurse (APN) who cares for patients who may be experiencing intimate partner violence (IPV). An Institutional Review Board responsible for human subject's research at The University of Arizona reviewed this research project and found it to be acceptable, according to applicable state and federal regulations and University policies designed to protect the rights and welfare of participants in research.

I would very much appreciate your voluntary participation in my survey to obtain some information about your experiences and background on this important health topic. This survey, while not offering immediate benefits to you, may help you to clarify your role in IPV treatment as well as help to inform both educational and practice institutions about what APNs need to more effectively treat victims. You will be given a chance to participate in a drawing for one of three $100 gift cards to Amazon if that is legal in your state or territory of residence. Participation in the research study is not required to enter the raffle. Entries are limited to one entry per person -subjects under age 18 must have written consent from a parent or lawful guardian, and participation in the raffle is void where prohibited by law.

Since this is a survey of APNs, we ask that you complete this survey only if you are a currently practicing APN or midwife with at least a master's degree.
