I'm a nursing student at a community college on the east coast. I have to write a recommendation report based on my major for my Technical Writing course. After reading a fascinating article for another assignment, I decided to write my report on the nurse's role in sexual abuse disclosure. As part of the report we have to draft a survey and administer it to at least thirty people, analyze the results and incorporate them into recommendations.
Obviously this can be a very touchy subject and one than many people would like to keep private. Since the internet can be wonderfully anonymous, would you be willing to take the survey and help out a desperate student?
I've pasted it below. Feel free to post your answers as part of this thread or email it to me at kellykelly0489 @ gmail. com
