New Culture and Climate Survey for Schools of Nursing

AACN’s Leading Across Multidimensional Perspectives (LAMP℠) Culture and Climate Survey was developed to assess the experiences of diverse students, faculty, and staff at nursing schools and identify practices that facilitate student success and a sense of belonging. The LAMP℠ survey instrument provides action reports that assess the unique culture and programmatic characteristics of individual schools of nursing. LAMP℠ gives academic administrators a better understanding of how their learning environment influences student experiences and achievement, which can help drive institution-level decision-making and meaningful change.  

Why Conduct a Culture and Climate Survey?

  • Provides a mechanism for gathering thoughtful input from students, faculty, and staff to help you determine what is working well and where more progress is needed in your efforts to create an inclusive learning environment.
  • Allows your school to benchmark its performance to a national data set and measure your progress over time. Participating schools will receive reports with feedback in 5 thematic areas:  Perceptions of Culture and Climate, Fair Treatment and Observations of Discrimination, Belongingness, Value of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and Campus Services and Clinical Training.
