Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this paper was to investigate the attitudes and beliefs about older adults' sexual activity among various nurse practitioner specialties. The data were obtained from two California Association of Nurse Practitioners chapter general meetings. Twenty-seven nurse practitioners participated in answering the demographic data sheet and the modified Sexual Attitudes and Beliefs Survey (SABS). The study compared family nurse practitioners ( n = 19) to other nurse practitioner specialties (n = 8). The findings showed no significant difference in the total and individual SABS scores, but the nurse practitioners reported that they believed that older adult patients did not expect nurse practitioners to ask about their sexual concerns. Implications of the study for practice and for further research were included.
