Highlights and Updates
Pilot Study Underway!
Our main research activity is a national survey that will be sent to over 9,000 registered nurses (RNs), nurse practitioners (NPs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and registered psychiatric nurses (RPNs) in rural and remote communities in every province and territory of Canada, and in both official languages.
Before the national survey can be sent out to nurses across the country, it has to be pilot-tested first. This pilot study is taking place during the month of September.
We will be seeking volunteers to participate in our pilot study. Read more…
