Abstract

Our purpose was to assess radiologic imaging content in family nurse practitioner (FNP) curricula and FNP perspectives concerning practice needs. Anonymous, 5-item, Web-based surveys were distributed to FNP program directors (n = 21) That included items concerned FNP radiologic imaging needs in primary care. Anonymous 13-item Web-based surveys were distributed to practicing FNPs (n = 289 responses). Items assessed FNP confidence regarding radiologic imaging practice guidelines. Program directors reported radiologic imaging curricular content as critical for practice. FNPs reported radiologic imaging education was insufficient; 25% reported receiving none. Addressing FNP practice needs by enhancing FNP radiologic imaging curricula will facilitate FNP confidence and competence.
