1992 NAPNAP membership survey: part II. Practice characteristics of pediatric nurse practitioners indicate greater autonomy for PNPs.

Abstract

The 1992 membership survey, authorized by the Executive Board of NAPNAP as part of an ongoing plan to survey members every 4 years, had three foci: (a) demographic characteristics of NAPNAP members, (b) practice characteristics of NAPNAP members, and (c) opinions of NAPNAP members related to health care issues. Information gathered from this membership survey will be used to assist in planning NAPNAP programs and direction, to advocate for pediatric nurse practitioners and for NAPNAP, and to inform health professionals, policy makers, and the general public about characteristics of a pediatric nurse practitioner and the work pediatric nurse practitioners do. NAPNAP members received the survey during the summer 1992, and 65% of the random sample of 800 were returned, a clear indication of strong interest on the part of NAPNAP members to be heard. This article, the second of two describing survey results, presents data describing characteristics of members' practice and the clients they serve.
