In 2010, Drs. Walter Willett, Janet Rich-Edwards, Stacey Missmer, and Jorge Chavarro started Nurses’ Health Study 3 in collaboration with investigators at the Channing Laboratory and the Harvard School of Public Health. For the first time ever, the study is entirely web-based, participants include female LPN/LVNs, RNs, and nursing students and the study is also open to nurses in Canada. NHS3 aims to be more representative of nurses’ diverse backgrounds.  It will closely look at health issues related to lifestyle, fertility/pregnancy, environment, and nursing exposures.
