Harvard School of Public Health and Brigham and Women’s Hospital are excited to
announce that the Nurses' Health Study
is growing. Started in 1976 and
expanded in 1989, the information provided by its 238,000 dedicated
nurse-participants has allowed NHS to produce key advances in literally
hundreds of important topics–altering medical practice and changing national
dietary guidelines. Nurses' Health Study 3
is now accepting nurses
into their newest
study. ANA encourages our members and their colleagues to participate.
We hope you will act as an ambassador to encourage your
colleagues to join this new study. For the new cohort, the
plan is to enroll over 100,000 female nurses (RNs and LPNs) and nursing
students between 20 and 46 years old (born after January 1, 1965). The
new study is entirely web-based.
