In preparation for magnet status the revised Nursing Work Index (NWI-R; Aiken & Patrician, 2000) was selected to assess nurses' perceptions of the work environment in a Midwest pediatric medical center. The validity of survey findings is contingent upon having a representative sample participate. However, historically this organization has survey participation rates of 40-50 %. Purpose: To increase the response rate in an electronic survey of nurses. Theoretical Framework: Diffusion of Innovations Model by E. M. Rogers (1995). Subjects: Approximately 1,200 nurses met the inclusion criteria of being employed at our facility for greater than six months, at 16 hours / week or more, and doing ôhands onö care of patients. Methods: Strategies to increase the response rate were based on the literature. The survey had 68 items including 57 items from the NWI-R. The electronic survey design was straightforward and was pilot tested with the magnet steering committee and found to take <15 minutes to complete. A pre-notification email was sent out to potential participants a week prior to the survey. The survey was distributed via email and included concise directions with a link for easy access to the survey. Email wording was carefully crafted for clarity and brevity. A magnet ôchampionö was available on each unit for questions concerning access to the survey. Reminder emails with links to the survey were sent out at days 7 and 23. An incentive of a printable coupon for free drink from the cafeteria came on screen after survey submission. Results: Upon preliminary analysis, approximately 66% of eligible nurses participated in this survey, with one unit having 87% participation. Conclusions: In assessing, job satisfaction and work environment it is necessary to have a representative sample. These strategies were effective in increasing survey participation by over 30 % within one Midwest setting. [Poster Presentation]
