Dear Registered General Nurse,
I am inviting you to participate in an online survey of Registered General Nurses working in Ireland.
The aim of this study is to establish what are the opinions and perceptions of Registered General Nurses’ on the roles/ responsibilities of the nurse, their employer and regulatory body in the maintenance of the nurse’s professional competence.
The survey can be accesses by clicking on the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/STP6933
The closing date for accessing this survey is Monday 12th May, 2014.
The ongoing maintenance of competence in nursing practice is of the utmost importance for the safeguarding of public confidence in the provision of health services. Your opinions and perceptions are extremely important on this topic area.
Your participation would be greatly appreciated and valued by the research team.
