Dear Nurse-Trainer:

I am pleased to announce that in response to requests from Nurse-Trainers and others, the Department of Human Services, Division of Developmental Disabilities is requesting your assistance in building a Nurse-Trainer database that will enable the Division to communicate with you in a timely fashion.

If you are a registered professional nurse and/or advanced practice nurse who has successfully completed the DHS nurse-trainer training program and continue to serve individuals with intellectual developmental disabilities, we are requesting that you complete an online survey. The information you provide will be secured in the Nurse-Trainer database.

When you are ready to complete the survey, you should have your Nurse-Trainer Certificate Date available. Please see Nurse-Trainer Mailing List to enter your information.  Of particular importance is an e-mail address so we can communicate with you.

Please complete all requested fields. After all fields are completed, choose "save."

Once this database is established, it will become an important resource for sharing information with Nurse-Trainers. Please complete this information by close of business (February 7, 2011.)

Thank you for all your work in your role as a Nurse-Trainer and for your assistance in helping us build this database.

Sincerely,

Arden R. Gregory, PhD, RN
Statewide Nursing Coordinator
