Health Resources Administration (DHEW/PHS), Hyattsville, MD. Div. of Nursing.
This bibliography brings together much of the literature prepared by individuals, organizations, and agencies on nurse practitioners and the expanded role of the nurse. Section I on expanded role includes citations and abstracts to documents that provide general information about the nurse practitioner's role and specific information on the different types of nurse practitioners and areas of practice. Section II on the education of practitioners includes citations spanning a continuum from informal continuing education programs to formal academic programs. The acceptance of nurse practitioners is the topic in section III, including materials on patient and physician attitudes towards nurse practitioners. The references in section IV on evaluation provide insight into the cost effectiveness of using nurse practitioners, their potential impact on health care delivery, and their level of performance in managing patient care. The last section provides general information about several issues relevant to health care planning. All citations contain source availability information. Most citations are dated between 1970 and 1977. (DS)
