As nurses, we have been tested like no other over the past almost two years, with COVID-19 highlighting the many challenges that nurses face. This survey will allow you to add your input to that of thousands of other nurses regarding facility staffing methods, unsafe staffing, and moral distress. You are reading page 2 of Covid 2021 Survey: How is your staffing determined and do you feel it is safe? Do you experience moral distress?. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Nurses— this survey is for LPNs RNs and APRNs! We have 2 weeks left and the response rate is quite low compared to last time. We had close to 9500 RNs respond. It’s no where near that amount. I know everyone is tired. But please do it. Your voices will be heard. It will be published. Please share with your colleagues. 
Here’s an article I wrote for Medscape. We’re trying to get the word out about the survey. https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/960519?src=

My ER is still 5-1 just like pre Covid.  4 rooms and 1 hallway.  2 trauma nurses floating if they don’t have a trauma alert.  We aren’t any busier than pre Covid 225 pt a day 

The pay and incentives have become amazing through.  The nurses are making higher hourly than I am as an FNP($80/hr)
