Current research on NPs’ use of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Clinical Practice Guideline for the Diagnosis, Evaluation, and Treatment of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in Children and Adolescents is limited. This cross-sectional survey examined 89 NPs in Upstate New York regarding self-reported practice behaviors based on the guideline. Most NPs followed at least 50% of the AAP guideline for diagnosis and treatment. However, use of all criteria was less than optimal.
