Study on nurses’ use of social media

Posted over 7 years ago by Regina Pommer

Dear nurses, 

Do you use Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, SlideShare, Podcasts/Videocasts, or any other kinds of social media? 

Social media is a common method of communication, but little is known about how nurses use social media, and their perception of social media. 

We would like to invite you to participate in a research study by completing an online, anonymous survey (https://fsu.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_6wWckr1Te0Zav8p). The purpose of this study is to identify how often and for what reasons nurses use social media and how nurses perceive usefulness, privacy and trust when using social media. If you have a nursing license, you’re eligible to participate.

The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. Upon completion, you are eligible to enter into a random drawing for one of three $100 Amazon.com gift cards by providing your e-mail address. Your participation is voluntary. If you decide to participate in the survey you’re free to withdraw at any time. Your responses in this study will be kept anonymous, private, and confidential.

Pleas click the link below to participate in the survey:


This study is approved by the Institutional Review Board at the Florida State University. The Assurance Number is FWA00000168/IRB number IRB00000446. You can find information about the project and the informed consent form at http://socialqa.cci.fsu.edu/ns.html.

If you have any questions about the survey, feel free to contact Dr. Sanghee Oh (shoh@cci.fsu.edu) or Dr. Mai Kung (mkung@fsu.edu). 

We welcome and greatly appreciate your help!
