Dear colleagues,

As international member of the NNNG I would like to motivate NNNG members to complete following survey:

The practice of a nutrition support nurse varies with the individual nurse’s educational background, position, and practice environment. Therefore we would like to invite you to complete a survey which will take about 15 minutes.

The purpose of this project:

This study/survey aims to explore the current status of nutrition nurses at a national and international level. The project team intends to investigate socio-demographics, working conditions and nutrition related challenges (legal, administrative, colleagues, other health care professionals) among nutrition nurses. The authors assume that the results of this survey will give a comprehensive picture of nutrition nurses’ professional field and to develop better strategies to empower them.

The project team:

  • Zehra GOK METIN, PhD, RN, Assoc. Prof.a
  • Hatice PARS, PhD, RN, Assist. Prof.b
  • Kurt BOEYKENS, CNSc  (NNNG-member)
