Be heard in our national nurse survey

The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged our health care system in unprecedented ways. As decision-makers chart a course for recovery, it’s crucial for nurses and health care workers to be heard.

That’s why United Nurses of Alberta is working with the Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions (CFNU) to conduct a national study. The CFNU is Canada’s largest nurses’ organization representing about 200,000 care providers and nursing students in every health sector.

The CFNU will be conducting an online survey with a randomly selected sample of nurses and healthcare workers from across the country.

If you are selected, we urge you to participate.

The survey will gauge your job satisfaction, workload, stress and other factors during the pandemic. By illuminating these factors, we can better understand your experience and more effectively advocate on your behalf. The data gathered for this survey will directly inform our recommendations to governments on how to improve working conditions and patient care.

The CFNU has engaged Viewpoints Research Ltd., a professional research company, to conduct the survey. Your responses will be kept strictly confidential, and any identifying information such as name or email address will be removed from the collected data. Results will only be reported in aggregate, and no individual responses will be singled out.

In the next few days you may be randomly selected to receive an email with a unique link inviting you to participate in this important research. We urge you click on the link and complete the survey as soon as possible.The survey should take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete.The survey link will remain open for about one month. If you have any questions about the survey or the process, please contact the CFNU by emailing or calling 1-800-321-9821. 

Your individual responses will be completely confidential and will not be available for review by anyone at the CFNU or United Nurses of Alberta.

Your voice matters, and we urge you to participate and be heard!
