Former studies aimed at answering questions regarding the acceptance of the nurse practitioner role usually have compared that role to that of the primary care physician. This study seeks answers to the question of acceptance of the role of the nurse practitioner as it stands on its own, encompassing the concepts of both care and cure. Using a five-point Likert scale, 90 adult recipients of nurse practitioners' care for acute episodic and chronic illnesses in clinic settings, were surveyed as to their perceptions of that care. The data were statistically analyzed and were found to show a high level of acceptance by all types of care seekers. These findings lend encouragement for the increased use of nurse practitioners in the future.
