A nursing workforce research study is being conducted in collaboration with the University of North Dakota and the ND Center for Nursing. We are working on improving North Dakota’s nursing workplace culture in order to help recruit and retain more nurses. Results will be used to determine new strategies and to also develop a system to designate health care facilities with healthy nursing workforce culture. There are 2 ways in which you can participate, and you are invited to participate in both if you are able.

  1. Attend a focus group.  The Dickinson Focus groups will be held at:
