  8. 8. Nursing and Midwifery NP governance: who should NPs report to?
  9. 9. Who does a Nurse Practitioner report to? • Nurse practitioners are registered nurses and are fully accountable for their own practice in law. Complaints against nurse practitioners would be made to the employer, the NMBA or health ombudsman in the same way as for any other nurse • Within an employment setting, the most appropriate reporting arrangements for NPs will depend on both the organisation and the role/services the nurse practitioner is accountable for • Some nurse practitioners have multiple reporting arrangements, for example, as a senior nursing position they may report to the Director of Nursing for professional matters; the clinical or divisional head for clinical/service matters and they may even have a functional or operational reporting arrangement to a business manager/unit manager • In smaller interdisciplinary service models there may be simpler reporting arrangements direct to a General Manager. In this case, developing professional links (even external) to a nursing mentor are recommended for nurse practitioners http://www.health.vic.gov.au/nursing/furthering/practitioner/nurse-practitioner-frequently-asked-questions#16
