Are You A Nurse? Please Consider Our Nursing Study
Purpose: Dr. Audrey Beauvais and Dr. Michael Andreychik of Fairfield University are conducting this project to better understand aspects of nurses’ experience on the job.
Participant criteria: We are seeking direct care nurses who have worked for at least 1 year in a healthcare environment in which they interact directly with patients for at least 8 hours per week. You must be 18 years of age or older in order to participate in the study, and write and speak English fluently.
Study outline: Participation involves completing an initial survey online, which will take about 15 - 20 minutes. Then, every ten days for the next four months, you will be contacted via email and asked to complete a brief survey about some of your experiences that week. Each of these surveys should take about 5 - 10 minutes. Over the entire course of the study, you will be asked to complete 13 total surveys, which we expect will take you no more than 1.5 hours in total.
Compensation: There are three “tiers” of compensation for this study.
- Tier 1: If, at the end of the second month of the study you have completed the initial survey and at least 5 of the first 6 brief follow-up surveys, you will receive an Amazon gift card for $7.50 via email.
- Tier 2: If, at the end of the fourth month of the study you have completed the initial survey and at least 11 of the first 12 brief follow-up surveys, you will receive an additional Amazon gift card for $7.50 via email, bringing your total compensation to $15.
- Tier 3: If, at the end of the fourth month of the study you have completed the initial survey and all 12 brief follow-up surveys, you will receive an additional Amazon gift card for $12.50 via email, bringing your total compensation to $20.
