Hello all. I am in the midst of completing my doctoral degree and in need of your help. If you are a nurse or know of someone that would be interested in participating in my study please forward the following to them. All information is confidential. I need 5-7 participants willing to share their experience.
Are you a confident nurse professional that has been targeted by a supervisor or manager’s uncivil behavior?
If so, you could provide helpful insight!
My name is Paul Helmreich and I am a doctoral student at Capella University. To complete my degree, I am conducting a research study that seeks to understand the direct experiences of female nurses’ (RN) self-confidence when confronted by a supervisor’s or manager’s uncivil workplace behavior (e.g., emotional or verbal abuse such as yelling, name-calling, gossiping, and blatant disregard for the employee in public or private).
If you are able to participate or know someone that could share their experiences, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will forward more information about the study to you. A 90-minute interview either in person or by telephone is required. If interested, once the research is complete, an executive summary of the study will be forwarded to you.
I hope you will partake in this study by contacting me by email. If you do not have the time or background for this study, I ask that you please FORWARD this invitation flyer to other female RNs that may have experienced targeted workplace incivility.
Thank you for your efforts with this study!
