This page is intended to provide doctoral students at NMC important information and requirements for students wanting to submit an application to the Institutional Review Board.
In order for IRB members to effectively review your project for determination (research, EBP, or QI) and/or approve the project, you will need to submit the following documents:
The NMC IRB has taken the position that any exempt or non-research projects that intend to recruit participants specifically for such projects, must provide a consent form or agreement form/letter. Documentation of consent in the form of participant signature may not be needed.
The information provided to participants must include at minimum 1) the purpose of the project, 2) a general description of the project (procedures to be followed and expected duration, 3) a description of how confidentiality will be maintained, 4) explanation of who to contact for questions, 5) statement that participation is voluntary, and 6) any other information that a reasonable participant would want to know before participating in the project.
