The Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) captures the interventions performed by nurses. The NIC research team has published surveys results from a variety of specialty organizations within nursing (e.g., oncology, pediatrics, critical care). One specialty within nursing that had not been surveyed was the nurse practitioner (NP). The NIC has many interventions that describe the work of the NP, but the most pertinent interventions to their practice have not been identified by nurse practitioners themselves. The purpose of this study was to extend the “specialty use” research completed by the NIC research team. A survey method was used in this descriptive study that sampled 1,190 licensed NPs in Minnesota. Participants were asked to identify the NIC interventions that they considered a part of the their practice. This presentation will describe the study methodology and the top 20 responses received from each of the NP specialty areas. Comparisons of identified “core” interventions will be made between the various NP specialty areas and between the NPs and the previously studied specialty organizations. Implications for the nurse practitioner such as the ability to define the uniqueness of their role and the ability to capture their nursing interventions within their documentation will be discussed.
