Study Name and dates:

California Nurse Practitioners Perceptions on Practice and Precepting

August 1-August 31, 2017

 

Purpose and Background

The purpose of this study is to explore the current perceptions and experiences of nurse practitioners in California with state limitations on scope of practice. With a shortage of primary care providers and nurse practitioners comprising the fastest growing group of health care providers, exploring the current practice landscape and experiences of currently practicing nurse practitioners can provide insight and value for student nurse practitioners that will enter the primary care workforce in the near future. Knowledge of limitations, barriers or other factors may influence student actions and preparation for successful transition to practice.  Prompt entry into the advanced practice nurse workforce can reduce the current burden of an inadequate primary care provider supply. 

 

Research Question

What are the current perceptions of nurse practitioners on the current practice landscape and preceptorships?

 

Subjects

Members of a state oriented professional organization, within a state imposing limitations on scope of practice with focused attention on currently employed nurse practitioners

 

Procedures

Potential participants will be contacted through a listserv provided to CANP members. Participants that elect to participate will be asked to voluntarily provide consent and complete an online survey. Data obtained will be anonymous and will be analyzed to determine any common themes/ perceptions regarding the topic of interest.  The findings will be summarized and disseminated for the purpose of illuminating NP perceptions on factors influencing the practice landscape and willingness to precept students.

 

Potential risks

No risks beyond what is typically encountered in everyday practice are anticipated. Subjects will be asked questions about their personal views related to the role of NPs and the clinical practice landscape. Due to the data collection format via online survey, it is possible that the survey may be accessible to people that do not comprise the population of interest or an unwanted third party.

 

Potential benefits

Current perceptions on practice related conditions may provide anticipatory guidance for new graduate NPs and student nurse practitioners.  Information obtained may also provide a platform for more in-depth study of any reported information of interest to the NP profession and may allow for a more in-depth understanding of the current practice landscape for NPs practicing in California, as well as other states with limited scope of practice.

 

Methods for providing confidentiality

 

Use of Qualtrics survey software collects responses via an anonymous survey submission link, no personal identifying information will be directly obtained or linked to survey responses.

 

Confirmation of informed consent

Voluntary completion of the online survey constitutes informed consent

 

Expectations of study participants

For those that voluntarily participate, completion of an online survey comprised of up to 20 questions is requested.  It is suggested that this is completed in one sitting, and the estimated time for completion is approximately 8 minutes. Completion of the survey may be quicker depending upon respondent work experience and employment status, and it may include completion of all 20 questions and take more than 8 minutes if the open response fields are used instead of choosing a pre-populated response option.  A future survey may be developed based upon findings of this study and future participants may be asked to indicate if they provided feedback for this initial study, for which responses are currently being requested in California Nurse Practitioners Perceptions on Practice and Precepting (2017).
