To investigate parent perceptions of neonatal nurse practitioners (NNPs) caring for their premature infants in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Theoretical/Conceptual Framework The Circle of Caring (Dunphy & Winland-Brown, 1998) is the framework used to guide this study. It is a model of advanced nursing practice that incorporates aspects of both nursing and medical practice, consistent with most NNP practice models. Families’ perceptions are valued in this model. Thus, the Circle of Caring fits well with a study investigating parents’ perceptions of care. Subjects A convenience sample of parent-infant dyads for all infants born at either of two data collection sites is used. Subjects include infants born with an estimated gestational age (EGA) of 24 – 35 weeks. Infants who die within the first week of life or those with lethal congenital anomalies are excluded from the study. Method The Neonatal Index of Parent Satisfaction (NIPS; Mitchell-DiCenso et al., 1996), a 27-item questionnaire, is being used. The NIPS helps discriminate between parents who are satisfied and those who are not satisfied with care in the NICU. Photographs of the NNPs are included in the questionnaire booklets to help parents distinguish them from other caregivers. Using an alpha=.05 and a power level of .8, it was determined that a sample size of 94 parent-infant dyads is needed. Data have been collected from 25 parent-infant dyads; data collection is ongoing and preliminary interim analysis is forthcoming. Descriptive statistics will be generated for the NIPS. An independent t test will be performed to compare perceptions of caring for the two groups (satisfied vs. dissatisfied). Pearson Correlation Coefficient will be used to examine the strength of the relationship between parent satisfaction and caring behaviors of NNPs. A regression analysis will be performed to establish the predictive value of illness severity, infant mortality risk, and maternal labor and delivery factors in determining parent satisfaction with care by NNPs.
