Short Questionaire

  1. Hi, im looking for some volunteers to fill out 25 questions that I have compiled for an assignment in my Pre-Health sciences program. The survey contains questions regarding what it's like to work as an RN, and nursing school.

    I am looking for either people that have been working as an RN for years, a new RN graduate or a current RN student.

    preferably from Ontario, for I live there. Thanks.

    Well, I'm not from Ontario, but I'm in graduate school in the states and I've been an RN 7yrs. If you would like for me to do the questionnaire, let me know.

    I'm in the Detroit, MI area (Windsor, ON is just a bridge or tunnel away), and I'm a recent grad RN. I'd be happy to fill out the questionnaire as well.

    Best of luck to you!

    i know you said preferrably Ontario, but is this school preference or a personal preference? I would think your teachers might be interested in questionaires filled out by people from different parts of the continent, even the world! Not an RN yet, got about a year, but currently in school. I'd love to help if I could. I'm from SC in the southeast of the US.
