  • Abstract

    This is the second wave of a multi wave panel survey that studied newly licensed registered nurses who obtained their first license to practice between September 1, 2004 and August 31, 2005. It was conducted as part of the RN Work Project, a national study of new nurses funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The survey interviewed the nurses about their jobs, turnover, intentions and attitudes--including intent, satisfaction, organizational commitment, and preferences about work.
  • Methods

    ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes..
  • Methods

Sampled Universe
Nurses who responded to the first wave of the survey: Newly Licensed Registered Nurses, 2006 (ICPSR 36773). The first wave interviewed nurses who obtained their first license to practice between September 1, 2004 and August 31, 2005.
The wave 2 survey attempted to interview all of the nurses who responded in wave 1. The wave 1 respondents were selected using a random stratified cluster design which mirrored the sampling design of the Community Tracking Study (ICPSR 2524, 2597, 3199, 3267, 3764, 3820, 4216 and 4584). The baseline sample was nested in the 60 CTS sites (51 Metropolitan Statistical Areas and nine groups of non-MSA counties in 35 states across the contiguous United States) and was designed to select nurses with equal probabilities of selection across the sites.
