Nurse Educators Who Teach Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing in the Classroom, Clinical, and/or Simulation Setting

Dear Nurse Educator,  

My name is Dr. Briana Snyder, and I am a faculty member in the Department of Nursing at Towson University. I am writing to invite you to participate in a research study about nurse educators who teach psychiatric-mental health nursing in the classroom, clinical, and/or simulation setting.  If you are an adjunct, part-time, or full-time nurse educator who is currently teaching psychiatric-mental health nursing in any accredited nursing program in the United States at any level (diploma, associate, baccalaureate, graduate, etc.), you are eligible to participate. 

If you decide to participate, you will be asked to complete an anonymous, online survey that asks you about your teaching practices. You will also be asked questions about whether or not you currently teach dissociative disorders content to nursing students, how important you believe it is to teach dissociative disorders content to nursing students, barriers to teaching dissociative disorders content to nursing students, and similar questions. The entire study should take approximately 15 minutes to complete.  Click here to read the informed consent and begin the survey: 

Remember, this is completely voluntary. You can choose to be in the study or not.  Institutional review board (IRB) approval for this study was granted by the Towson University IRB (protocol # 1723). If you have any questions about the study, please contact me at [email protected]  

Thank you very much, and please share this research opportunity with others who may be eligible.
