The questions will ask basic information about yourself, your fluency in Spanish, and a set of 10 questions about your confidence in responding to various forms of disruptive behaviors from other nurses. It should take you about 5 minutes to complete. We are offering $5 e-gift cards to a choice of vendors as a small token of our appreciation for your time. We will ask for your email address to enter you to receive one of 100 of these gift cards.
