The Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN) promotes Research Studies that we believe will benefit our members and Medical-Surgical nursing.

If an invitation to participate in a research study is on the AMSN website or emailed to you by AMSN, it has already been carefully examined and approved by the AMSN Research Coordinator.

Listed below are current research studies you may want to participate in, and/or are presented here for your information.

Ms. Lori M. Lovelace, RN, BSN is a graduate student in Gardner-Webb University: Hunt School of Nursing’s MSN program conducting research on satisfaction of organizational communication among registered nurses in the acute care/hospital setting based on the time spent in direct patient care.

There are no direct benefits to completing this survey; however, the information may provide knowledge to nurse leaders on job satisfiers among registered nurses in the work environment. There are no known or foreseeable risks to participating in the research study.

Magnet Forces and Job Satisfaction

This survey is meant to focus on job satisfaction factors and Magnet status’s impact on job satisfaction. It is part of my DNP capstone project and has been approved by the IRB through Regis University.

The only risk identified is possible survey fatigue. The results will remain anonymous, and as such cannot be shared with those taking the survey.

If there are any questions about the survey, you may contact Emerald Bilbrew at
