Research study participation opportunity for undergraduate students

The School of Nursing has been asked by PhD student at Marquette University to share an opportunity to participate in a research study that aims to explore students’ perceptions of sense of belonging and likelihood of involvement in their nursing programs. The lead researcher is recruiting prelicensure nursing students who identify as belonging to an ethnically or culturally minoritized group to better understand their lived experiences of the nursing program environment.

It is not an expectation that you participate in this study. This is something you can do if you wish. Participation involves completing an online anonymous survey that is expected to take approximately  20-30 minutes to complete. There is also an option to participate in an interview after completing the survey. Survey responses and interviewee information will not be connected and will be de-identified.

Faculty and leaders at the UW-Madison School of Nursing will not know who decides to participate.

If you are interested in participating, the survey is available here:

A study information sheet and recruitment flyer is also attached to this announcement for more information.

If you have questions regarding the study, please contact the study lead: Maria Peña (email:
