I am a graduate student under the direction of Dr. Michelle Morgan, DNP, RN, ANP-BC in the Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation at Arizona State University. I am inviting you to participate in a project regarding Domestic Violence Education for Nurses. The project has IRB approval and participation is anonymous.  Please watch the 38-minute educational video and complete the survey at the end of the presentation.  The survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2B3SXTR and takes just a few minutes to complete.  Information collected in the survey will be used to better understand how to support healthcare professionals when caring for victims of domestic violence.  

Sincerely,
