Welcome to the Practice Analysis Survey for the
Bariatric Nurse

The purpose of this survey is to determine the responsibilities and knowledge requirements of bariatric nurses. The results will be used in updating the certification exam for bariatric nurses. Your judgments are very important to the success of this project.

There are three sections in this survey. Section 1 contains demographic questions about your background and practice. Section 2 contains a comprehensive list of job tasks that may be performed by bariatric nurses. Section 3 contains a list of knowledge statements that may be applicable to bariatric nurses. You will be asked to rate the significance of each job task and knowledge statement in Section 2 and 3 to your work in bariatric nursing.

The survey should take 30 to 40 minutes to complete. You can complete each part of the survey in separate sittings at the same computer- you will have to restart the survey if you use the link on a different computer. Please be aware that you must completely finish a page before clicking on "Next" to save your responses up to that point. There is no limit on the number of times you can use the link to go back to the survey before clicking on "Done" to submit your survey. If you experience any technical difficulties, please email thomas.trautman@psionline.com
