    Dear Support Network:

    I am a Registered Nurse in NYS and also a PhD student with a special interest in the Atrial Fibrillation Population.  I have worked in cardiology/electrophysiology for 14 years in roles as bedside, procedural area-Electrophysiology, quality and research.  I am moving toward my dissertation and was wondering if you allow opportunities for advertising on your site for enrollment into research studies being conducted by PhD Student from Molloy College (Rockville Centre, Long Island New York). 

    Kindly advise as this opportunity would be available.

    Thank you for your time.

    Patricia Nadraus MS, RN, CCRN
