School Nurse Health-Pest Survey

We are interested in learning about your knowledge, awareness and concerns related to pest prevention and management. Your participation in this survey will help us to design programs and resources intended to support safe and healthy learning environments. All information collected will be used only for research purpose and will be kept confidential. Survey results will not be linked with specific participants in future publications. This survey is being conducted as part of a 2-year project funded by the Northeastern Integrated Pest Management Center located at Cornell University.
