The Australian practice nurse (PN) workforce was estimated to total 7,824 in 2007, with some 58% of general practices employing at least one nurse (AGPN 2008).
They are predominantly registered nurses (usually degree-qualified), with approximately one in five or one in six (15%-18%) holding certificate or diploma level qualifications (enrolled nurses) (AGPN 2008; ADGP 2006; Pascoe et al 2005).
The ratio of PNs to GPs was estimated at one PN for every 2.3 GPs in 2007 (AGPN 2008).
Around 59% of the PN workforce is located in rural areas (AGPN 2008), compared to around 30% of the GP workforce (Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing 2005; AIHW 2008a), which suggests a ratio in rural areas of about one PN for every 1.5 GPs.
A profile of some key characteristics of the sample is presented in Table 1, in comparison with the characteristics of the 2007 National Practice Nurse Workforce Survey (AGPN 2008).
