Abstract

This study describes nurse practitioners' (NPs) practice and employment trends, primary care/direct patient care involvement, scope of practice issues, productivity, and demographic characteristics. Data were collected by mailed survey from 2,499 NPs in New York State. NPs were predominantly certified as Adult, Pediatric or Family NPs. The vast majority of NPs were working (64.1% full-time; 22.7% part-time). Fifty percent said they spend over 80% of their time providing primary care. Over 50% of the NPs employed in non-hospital settings said that their organizations had contracts with four or more managed care organizations.
