ABSTRACT:

Objective
In 2005, we conducted a study of the prevalence of board certification requirements for hospital privileging and found that one-third of hospitals did not require pediatricians to be board certified. In 2010, the American Board of Pediatrics implemented the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. To examine changes in the policies of hospitals regarding requirements for board certification, we surveyed privileging personnel at hospitals across the country.

Study Design
Telephone survey between April 2010 and June 2010 of...

ABSTRACT:

Background
There is a nationwide shortage of neonatal nurse practitioners (NNPs). Strategies to increase NNPs must be informed by an understanding of their career motivations and decision processes.

Methods
Mail survey of all NNPs who applied to take the initial certification exam between January 2010 and June 2011 (N = 491).

Results
Response rate was 84.6%. Most NNPs (60%, n = 214) decided to pursue education as an advanced practice nurse while in practice as an RN and 22% (N = 80) prior to...

ABSTRACT:

Objective
Historically, most pediatric subspecialists have conducted their clinical work in academic health centers. However, increases in the absolute numbers of pediatric subspecialists in past decades, combined with greater concentrations of children in urban and suburban settings, might result in more opportunities for pediatric subspecialists to enter private practice. Our goal was to assess the proportions of subspecialists in private practice.

Methods
We surveyed a stratified, random, national sample...

ABSTRACT:

Objective
There is little nationally representative information describing the current manner in which nurse practitioners(NPs) and physician assistants (PAs) work in pediatric practices and their professional activities. To understand better the current NP and PA workforce in pediatric primary and subspecialty care, we conducted a national survey of pediatricians.

Methods
A survey study of a random national sample of 498 pediatric generalists and 1696 subspecialists in the United States was...
