Would anyone be willing to do an 8 question interview on being a nurse researcher?

  1. Hi! I'm a nursing student in CA. I need to interview a nurse researcher. It is just 8 questions.

    Would anyone working as a nurse researcher be willing to give me 15 minutes?

    I also need to interview a nurse practitioner. It is just 8 questions.

    We could do by phone or email.

    Would anyone be willing to give me 15 minutes?

    Please let me know. Thank you

    Welcome to AN! The largest online nursing community.

    I believe that the assignment to interview a nurse means to interview someone face to face. The interview process is a vital tool in the nursing process and it requires it to be face to face. This is an anonymous site, and while reliable, you still have no way of knowing of it really is a nurse answering the questions.

    There are many places to interview nurses. You can call you PCP office, local Dept of health, local schools, and some outpatient mini clinics like CVS....and free standing urgent care facilities.

    The whole process of stepping out of your comfort zone to ask a complete stranger to talk about a personal issue and to trust you enough to give you that information....is the assignment. The nursing interview is one of the most important skills a nurse must posses for in the admission interview process a nurse obtains valuable information that cannot other wise be obtained just by reading a patients body language during response. You need to become comfortable in talking with complete strangers....that is the purpose of the assignment. It is my personal belief that online interviews do not fulfill this process.

    I wish you the best on your nursing journey.

    What Esme said. Colleges and regional medical centers would be likely to have nurse researchers. Look at your nursing department web site (or even bulletin boards in your nursing building)- see what research the professors are doing.
