Dear school nurse,

We are public health nurses and researchers from the University of Kansas, Texas Christian University, and Wright State University. We are contacting you because you are a school nurse. We are recruiting school nurses from across the country to help us understand your perceptions, knowledge, application, and preferences in using crisis and emergency risk communication methods for disseminating information about COVID-19. We are eager to get representation from all the states to get a complete picture of crisis communication from your perspective. Your participation involves completing a survey that will take about 10-15 minutes. No identifiable information will be collected about you, and the survey is anonymous. In addition to the survey questions, we will request information about what state you work in, the general type (public vs private) and the setting of your school (Frontier rural, rural, suburban, or urban), and how long you have been a school nurse and at what level.

All questions are optional and you may choose not to answer. There are no personal benefits or risks to participating in this study. Participation is voluntary, and you can stop taking the survey at any time.

If you have any questions, please contact Jill Peltzer at or 913-588-3396. For questions about the rights of research participants, you may contact the KUMC Institutional Review Board (IRB) at (913) 588-1240 or

Jill Peltzer, PhD, APRN-CNS
Associate Professor, University of Kansas School of Nursing
