Nurses needed

If you are an active duty, retired, or Reserve component nurse who has deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan, you are invited to participate in a research study to explore the management of ethical issues you may have encountered in your nursing practice in a wartime environment. The knowledge you share from your experiences will help us understand how we can prepare other nurses practicing in wartime environments. If you are interested in participating, you will be asked to take part in an interview. If you would like to participate in this study, please contact the principal investigator, Lt. Col. (Ret.) Janice B. Agazio, AN, PhD. RN, associate professor, Catholic University of America, at 202-319-5719 or by email at agazio@cua.edu. Agazio will be at Womack Army Medical Center from July 15 to 17, if you would like to schedule an interview.
