Research for Graduate School - Please Take this Survey

  1. Recruitment Posting
    To the members of,

    Hello, our names are Amber Tibbles and Ian Pfeiffer. We are both Master's degree in nursing candidates at DePaul University in Chicago, IL. We are conducting a research study as part of our program under the supervision of our research advisors, Dr. Young-Me Lee ( and Daniel Mead ( from the School of Nursing at DePaul University.

    This quantitative descriptive survey is meant to assess the need for a CPR refresher course between the certification and recertification 24-month interval for registered nurses (RNs), while simultaneously analyzing factors that motivate RNs to refresh CPR skills between recertification periods. This research will also identify which CPR skills are lost between CPR recertification periods to assess what CPR training is needed to maintain CPR competency during those periods.

    This study is open to anyone who is a registered nurse, has BLS certification, currently employed in a healthcare setting, currently in a job providing patient care and is not a critical or acute care nurse or a nurse that holds ACLS certification.

    If you agree to participate in this study, completing the survey at will indicate your agreement to participate in the study. The online questionnaire consists of a "Population Screening" with five multiple choice questions and a "Confidence Level Performing CPR" section consisting of five multiple choice questions. The survey should take about 2-5 minutes to complete. Lastly, there is an optional and set-apart survey titled "Need Assessment of Refresher Course," following the primary survey which assesses participants' desire to take a refresher course and the motivating factor to refresh their skills. The "Need Assessment of Refresher Course" consists of three multiple choice questions that should take about one minute to complete.

    There will be no identifying information collected so the questionnaire is completely anonymous. You can access the survey by clicking on our survey link here: You can stop the survey at any time once you begin. At DePaul University, study results will be analyzed and discussed in a research paper. Once the article is completed, it will be available to you upon request.
