I have an assignment for an online class that requires having at least 3 experienced RNs fill out this form about their values so that I can do a writing project with the results. The problem is, I don't know any nurses and working and going to school full time it's a little hard to find the time to walk into a hospital and beg busy people to fill out surveys...I'm not really sure how exactly we ARE supposed to do this. So I was hoping if I posted the questions on here a few of you might take a couple minutes to answer. I would really really appreciate it. Thanks.
Carefully review the list. Then rank the list in the order of priority for you in your life. Place the number 1 next to the item on the list that you feel is most important. Place the number 2 beside the next most important item. Continue all the way through all 18 items with the number 18 next to the item you feel is least important for you. No two items can have the same number.
If you change your mind as you are going through the list it is OK to change your numbers. When you are done you have a list that indicates what you feel is important in life.

a prosperous life)
