Dear NP Colleague,

My name is Karen Bradley and I am a graduate student in the School of Nursing & Health Professions at the University of San Francisco. I am completing a doctoral project regarding nurse practitioner job satisfaction in partnership with the California Association for Nurse Practitioners (CANP).

As a member of the California Association for Nurse Practitioners, you are being invited to participate in this research survey entitled “California Nurse Practitioner Job Satisfaction”. Your participation in the survey is voluntary, you may skip any question you choose not to answer, or stop participation at any time.

If you agree to participate in this research survey, please complete the attached survey that asks about your type of work setting, clinical specialty, and job satisfaction. Completion of the survey should take no more than 10 minutes. You may access the anonymous survey at the following link:

All responses are anonymous, no individual results will be shared, and results will be reported or published only as group data. The raw data will be kept confidential. While there will be no direct benefit to you from participating in this study, the anticipated benefit of this study is a better understanding of the factors affecting nurse practitioner job satisfaction. There will be no costs to you, nor will you be reimbursed for your participation in this study.

If you have questions about the research, you may contact me at (909) 558-8510. If you have further questions about the study, you may contact the IRBPHS at theUniversity of San Francisco, which is concerned with protection of volunteers in research projects.

The CANP is aware of this study, but does not require that you participate in this research, and your decision as to whether or not to participate will have no influence on your present or future status as a member of CANP.

Thank you for taking time to participate in this important study.
