  • Description
    "Level of political participation and factors contributing to participation were measured among Midwest RNs (n = 468) via an online survey (Cronbach's ? = .95). Respondents reported engaging in primarily "low cost" activities (e.g., voting, discussing politics, and contacting elected officials), with fewer reporting speaking at public gatherings, participating in demonstrations, and membership in nursing organizations."
