I guess it's the sign of the times and we're in a generation where technology has made interaction impersonal. I remember an ACNP assignment such as this one in my program and I actually set up an appointment with an NP who worked in an ED for the interview and I showed up with a voice recorder. Times have changed I guess. But then again your project requires interviews from NP across the country. BTW, those are very good questions...definitely relevant to practice. I could potentially answer but I'm not sure how to go about it. I feel answering the questions by email doesn't give the real picture.
