Abstract

PURPOSE: To understand more about the nurse practitioner (NP) profession, a study was undertaken of the dissertation literature. DATA SOURCES: A search of Dissertation Abstracts Online yielded 134 dissertations that included NPs in the title or abstract and were awarded between 1970 and 2000. CONCLUSIONS: Most of the degrees are either PhD (61%) or EdD (27%). State-based universities produced the most degrees (70%) and six universities accounted for one-fourth of the degrees. The topics of NP-focused dissertations are wide ranging and include history, medical economics and managed care, NP education and professional role, and clinical and behavioral research. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: This dataset provides an important source of information for research on the NP profession.
