Nursing Survey Instruments
These questionnaires were used in conducting Research & Planning's Nursing Survey, funded by the Wyoming Health Care Commission.
Between June and October 2007, 3,680 questionnaires were sent to Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses involved in hospital care, ambulatory care, and long-term care in the state, with a response rate of at least 65%. The results of this effort are forthcoming.
