Author information

University of Portland School of Nursing, Ore., USA.


The 1997 NAPNAP membership survey examined demographic and practice characteristics of NAPNAP members. Surveys were mailed to a random sample of 800 NAPNAP members in spring 1997. Five hundred seventy-three surveys (70%) were returned. Two hundred eighty-eight respondents (50.8%) stated that they worked full time as a nurse practitioner (NP); 158 (27.9%) worked part time as an NP; and 121 (21.3%) were not employed as an NP. Data relating to the nature and scope of pediatric nurse practitioner practice were compiled from the responses of those who worked either full time or part time. Characteristics of pediatric nurse practitioners, their practice, and the clients they serve are described. Comparisons are made with data from previous NAPNAP membership surveys.
