Abstract

This descriptive study was an investigation of the intentions of 65 senior baccalaureate nursing students to become nurse practitioners (NPs). Students were given a Nurse Practitioner Inventory, which collected information on nine categories related to factors influencing specialization. The data show that a majority of nursing students do not have specific plans to become NPs, although most intend to further their education. The results suggest that this is in part related to a lack of exposure to and familiarity with the NP role.
