Impact of COVID 19 on Nurses and Social Workers Survey


The current pandemic situation is stressful for everyone, especially the nurses and social workers working on the front lines. Nurses and social workers have likely experienced elevated exposures to potentially traumatic events due to increased workloads, such as burnout and anxieties related to limited personal protective equipment (PPE).

We are trying to better understand the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on nurses' and social workers' health and well-being. In this study, nurse means the following regulated professionals: licensed practical nurse, registered practical nurse, registered nurse, registered psychiatric nurse, mental health nurse, nurse practitioner, and graduate nurse.

This study will involve several questionnaires to be completed online.
