12-hour Nursing Shift Survey

CSR assisted with questionnaire design and pretesting for a planned survey of Virginia Nurses, including cognitive interviews with 14 UVa nurses who pre-tested the draft instrument. The questionnaire explored nurses' views of the advantages and disadvantages of 12-hour vs 8-hour work shifts, taking into account personal needs and benefits to patients and work teams. The final instrument was fielded by the Virginia Nursing Association, polling their membership.
Sample
Membership of the Virginia Nursing Association. 3,400 nurses, not all of whom would be qualified for the study.
