Message from the Deputy Vice Chancellor

Colleagues,
Our nurses are highly valued members of our health care team. We would greatly appreciate hearing your thoughts and opinions via our first-ever VUMC R.N. and L.P.N. Satisfaction Survey.

The purpose of the R.N. and L.P.N. Satisfaction Survey is to evaluate workplace satisfaction. This survey is for all inpatient and ambulatory care nurses who have been employed a minimum of three months on their current unit or clinical area, and are engaged in direct patient care at least 50 percent of the time.

This survey remains open until the end of the day on Sunday, Aug. 22. To access the survey please go to the VUMC Nursing website at www.vanderbiltnursing.com and click on the homepage banner advertisement. As there are two separate surveys, please be sure to click the appropriate tab for either the R.N. or L.P.N. survey. If you have problems accessing the survey, please contact the Help Desk at 343-1631.

I want to assure you that all survey responses are anonymous.

Sincerely,
C. Wright Pinson, M.D., MBA
Deputy Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs
Senior Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs
