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 study with 171 responses (36% response rate). Results show that, although there was a generally positive regard for NPs, there is evidence of a difference in perception between the stakeholder groups. The finding that nurse policy participants had a lower overall perception rating score is significant given this is the group that drives policy at the state and territory levels.
