Pilot Study Complete

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.

We completed our pilot testing of the survey in the fall of 2013. Thank you to everyone who participated in that important work. The pilot survey participants provided valuable feedback that helped direct survey revisions. We are now preparing to implement the full survey across Canada beginning in April 2014.
