Research Request from Disaster Nursing Researchers


We are nurse researchers who are interested in exploring the experiences of nurses who have volunteered for more than one disaster relief effort. Much of the research highlights the negative personal effects resulting from disaster relief volunteerism. We are conducting a small qualitative study in the hopes of having a better understanding of the reasons why so many nurses continue to volunteer after their initial disaster relief deployment.

If you are a registered nurse and have participated in more than one disaster relief effort, we invite you to participate!

Data collection will be through phone interviews, which will take approximately 30 minutes. No names will be used in the reporting of the data and the information you provide will be kept strictly confidential.

Please email or call if you are interested in participating. We are happy to answer any additional questions you may have!

Thank you,
