Hello Nurses!

I am currently in nursing school and for one of my classes I am doing a survey on the divorce rates of nurses. I need your help! Everything will be anonymous on my report. :)

Please Answer the Following Questions:

  • What is your usual shift time? Ex: 7a-7p, 7p-7a
  • Are you divorced, single, or married?
  • If you have been divorced, do you think the timeframe of your shift contributed to your eventual divorce?
  • If you have been divorced, how many years were you married and working as a nurse before you got a divorce?

How would we get this information to you? I'm guessing many people here may not want to talk about their marriage/divorce status out in open on the board. Maybe you should create a Survey Monkey survey?

I agree. Survey Monkey is a good idea.

You might be interested in the divorce rate for nursing students as well. I saw more breakups during school than I have seen since working.

I got divorced while in nursing school, remarried as a nurse and have been married since almost 7 years. I'm pretty sure night shifters do have a higher divorce rate.

Pretty much this exactly, except we've been married for 8 years.

Our nursing instructors said that 1/3 of us will get a divorce 1/3 of us will have an affair and 1/3 of us will get pregnant during nursing school. We had several divorces, steamy affairs, and baby showers to talk about. Those instructors knew what they were talking about.
