Advanced practice nurses (APNs) are entering into employment practice relationships and working in a variety of clinical practice settings without the benefit of adequate preparation in organization management, business and finance. While the evolution of APN clinical expertise is well documented, their knowledge base in organizational management, business and finance is not. This exploratory, descriptive study discovers what business knowledge APNs in Nevada possess and their perception of its adequacy for practice; A 28-item questionnaire was mailed to all APNs registered with the Nevada State Board of Nursing. Eleven items describe the population. The remaining items address the research questions: (1) What business knowledge do APNs possess regarding practice as APNs? (2) Do APNs perceive their current level of business knowledge to be adequate for their current practice as APNs? The data reveal that Nevada APNs are unaware of their organizational and financial business management knowledge deficiency.
