ABSTRACT:

Objective
To determine the timing of and key factors in resident decision making to pursue either a career in general pediatrics or subspecialty training.

Design
We used a 10-item fixed-choice questionnaire that focused on exploring how and when pediatric residents make career choices.

Setting
The survey was administered to all categorical pediatric residents in the United States and Canada as part of the General Pediatrics In-Training Examination in 2007 and 2009...

ABSTRACT:

Background
Physician assistants (PAs) are licensed to practice with physician supervision. PAs do not specialize or subspecialize as part of their formal standard training; consequently, their license is not limited to a specific specialty. As such, PAs can, and do, change their practice settings at will. Some researchers have projected plans for the future use of the pediatric PA workforce. However, the information on which those projections have been based is limited.

Objective
To provide information regarding the current...

ABSTRACT:

Objective
We sought to determine the distribution and scope of practice of the neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP) workforce across the United States.

Methods
To determine distribution, we used counts of certified NNPs from the National Certification Corp (Chicago, IL). We calculated state NNP/child population ratios as the number of NNPs divided by the state population 0 to 17 years of age. We calculated NNP/NICU bed ratios as the number of NNPs divided by the total number of NICU beds per state. To characterize roles and scope...

ABSTRACT:

Objective
The goal was to characterize the pediatric role and scope of practice of family nurse practitioners (FNPs).

Methods
A mail survey of a random national sample of 1000 FNPs, stratified according to states that license nursepractitioners to practice independently, was performed. Frequencies were calculated and bivariate analyses were performed to determine the level of association between practice characteristics and practice state, practice location (urban versus rural), and type of care...

ABSTRACT:

Background
There are ∼ 13,000 pediatric nurse practitioners (PNPs) in the United States. PNPs have been suggested as professionals who could provide care to the growing cadre of children with chronic illnesses and expand the pool of subspecialty care providers. Little is known about current roles of PNPs in primary or subspecialty care.

Objective
To gain a better understanding of the roles, focus of practice, professional setting, and professional responsibilities of PNPs.

Methods
We...
