Abstract

Researchers investigating phenomena in nursing education are increasingly striving to conduct multisite studies. However, designing and managing multisite studies can be costly and time consuming. One complex and costly challenge of multisite studies can be anticipating and navigating the variations in the institutional review board requirements and expectations of different study sites. This article explores issues and regulations around protection of human subjects in multisite studies using the authors’ experiences launching the 2016 National Nursing Education Research Network surveys as an exemplar.
