allnurses.com is an excellent platform for nurses of all backgrounds and levels of work experience to exchange ideas, concerns and solutions regarding patient care and nursing practice. For these reasons Allnurses is a great place for nurses and students to learn and seek assistance in exploring and achieving future nursing career goals.
As a registered member, nurses and students are permitted to use allnurses.com to post academic nursing related research (surveys targeted for nurses), provided that the criteria below is met and approval is given.
Although there is no cost to post your research survey, you are required to participate on the site before you post your survey. This will help you to establish a presence on allnurses and connect with our members, which in turn should increase the responses to your survey.
Building Your allnurses Identity
Posting articles is a great way to get exposure prior to posting your research survey. We strongly recommend that you write at least one article. For more information on articles, please go to How to Submit an Article. We do ask that you provide a summary of your paper upon completion.
Another option for building your identity on the site is to submit at least 20 topics (threads). Your threads can be about anything nursing-related, such as questions you may have regarding your future career. Please do not post duplicate topics in more than one forum. For more information about starting a topic, please go to How do I start a new topic on allnurses.com? and How to Start a Great Topic.
The objective is to reach out and get to know our members and vice versa. It is important that they see you as an active participant on the site. This will increase the responses on your survey.
