Posters

Step 1:


If you already know how to put the poster together, create your own poster using PowerPoint. If you do not know how to make the poster, continue to Step 2.

Step 2:

Bring all information (text, graphics, tables, graphs, pictures, etc.) to the Executive Affairs Secretary. The secretary will help determine the poster layout.

Power Point

If you are not able to create your own PowerPoint presentation, the Research Secretary will need to know the text, format, (background, design template, color), and any tables, charts, or graphic wanted.
Allow 1-2 weeks to prepare.

If you are able to create your own PowerPoint but need assistance with the format (background, font, design template, color), bring a disc of the PowerPoint to the Research Secretary and she will complete the PowerPoint according to your specifications.
Allow 1 week to complete.

Typing

The Research Secretary is available to type forms or applications (abstract submission, grant application). She is also able to type editing changes made by faculty on manuscripts. See the Research Secretary for details.

Scanning

A scanner is available in the Research Center to scan graphics, photos, diagrams, texts, etc. Contact the Research Secretary or the Computer Support Representative for assistance.

On Call RA

The College of Nursing employs an On Call RA to assist faculty with various projects. A list of possible projects include:

Qualitative Research

  • Prepare Data For analysis

Quantitative Research

  • prepare code books
  • enter data
  • analyze date
  • manage data files (cleaning, verifying, organizing)
  • complete phone questionnaires
  • administer questionaire/surveys
  • gather data through chart reviews, observation of nursing staff, and survey of organizations as needed

Applicable to both Qualitative and Quantitative Research

  • search databases for relevant literature
  • retrieve articles
  • read, critique, and summarize articles
  • write literature review
  • write proposals for funding and institutional review board approval
  • complete annotated bibliographies
  • obtain and write informed consents
  • edit manuscripts

Contact the Research Secretary to request assistance from the On Call RA. The Research Secretary will need information on what the project is and how long it will take. Then she will have the On Call RA contact the faculty member.

Faculty using the On-Call RA will be expected to submit an evaluation of the work done by the RA on call as well as a detailed list of work done by the RA on call.

RA/TA Applications

Students may apply to be an RA or TA online by logging in to nursing.byu.edu. They need to fill out the application form found under “Tasks” and “Forms”. After an application has been submitted, faculty can find it under “Tasks”, “RA/TA Applications”. If a faculty member wants to hire a specific student, the faculty member needs to select the appropriate icon next to the students’ name, under either RA or TA.  Fill out the form that appears to begin the hiring process. After the hiring process is complete, faculty will receive an email informing them their student is authorized to begin working.  Student employees need to speak with the Research Secretary before beginning work regarding how to clock in.
