Among healthcare professionals, there is little research on health promotion and health-promoting practices, particularly advanced practice nurses (APN's) The literature also reveals a paucity of research on the counseling practices of APN's. The purpose of this descriptive, correlational study was to examine the relationships between selected variables, derived from Pender's revised Health Promotion Model (1996), and the degree to which they explain advanced practice nurses' current practice of health-promoting behaviors from a random sample of APN's (N = 357). The random sample was obtained from the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. The study also described the relationship between these behaviors and the APN's counseling of patients. Pender's HPM (1996) provided the theoretical framework for this study; Tools used to gather data were the demographic data sheet, the Health-Promoting Lifestyle Profile II (HPLP II), and the Health Promotion Inventory (BPI). Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the characteristics of the sample. The majority of the sample was female, Caucasian, married, and master's prepared. The HPLP II measured the health-promoting behaviors of APN's. (Abstract shortened by UMI.).
