Summary The aim of this study was to explore perceptions of nurse practitioner (NP) roles from NP, nurse manager,and nurse policy adviser perspectives in Australia. A questionnaire formed phase 1 of a mixed methods studywith 171 responses (36% response rate). Results show that, although there was a generally positive regard forNPs, there is evidence of a difference in perception between the stakeholder groups. The finding that nursepolicy participants had a lower overall perception rating score is significant given this is the group that drivespolicy at the state and territory levels.
