Stress

  1. Dear RNs

    HELP A STRESSED OUT STUDENT...

    I am a student and need to submit a research study before I can graduate. I did my study on stress and its affects on RNs (that way I know what to look forward to!).

    I need to send the following survey to RNs across the United States, if you can paste this and email it to me at any of the following locations that would be great!!! NO NAMES, EMAIL ADD OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT WILL BE IN THE STUDY IT IS CONFIDENTIAL.

    If you prefer to mail it (for anonymity):
    Attn: MARGARET REED
    Mailbox #334

    Temple City, CA 91780

    It is very short as this is a preliminary study.

    Best regards,
    Margaret Reed
