Survey of RN Work Schedule Characteristics, Rest and Meal Breaks, and Well-being

My name is Sarah Van Dyck, and I’m a doctoral student in Applied Industrial and Organizational Psychology at Portland State University. I’ve been working with the Oregon Nurses Association on various research projects since 2012.

I am currently conducting my dissertation research under the supervision of Dr. Leslie Hammer, with a focus on RN work schedule characteristics, recovery opportunities, and work-related health outcomes.

ONA members are invited to consider participating in my research study, "An Examination of Nurses’ Schedule Characteristics, Recovery from Work, and Well-Being." Participation in the study involves an anonymous online survey, which will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.

It is important to note that your participation is entirely voluntary and you may discontinue participation at any point in time. All survey information provided to ONA by PSU researchers will be presented in aggregate form and no identifying information will be released. 

Your participation in this study is extremely important and will contribute to a better understanding of the work life of ONA members. Though you may not receive any direct benefit from taking part in this study, the information you share may help you or other ONA members in the future. In addition, participants may enter into a drawing for one of ten $10 gift cards to The survey responses are anonymous, and will not be linked to information provided to award the gift cards.
