Currently, it is possible for the nation to receive primary care services from nurses at lower costs than physician manpower costs (National League for Nursing, 1991). The purpose of this study was to identify, through the use of a modified version of Valiga's (1982) Views of Nursing Instrument, the perceptions of the community that drive or restrain nurses in providing health care services. The subjects included a convenience sample of four constituencies (Strata) in the target community, where each constituency represented a leadership role influential enough to bring about change. Kurt Lewin's (1951) method for analysis of problem situations was utilized to organize the information into two categories: (a) those forces that restrain change and (b) those that drive change. Within the targeted community, it was determined that the community was ready to accept the concept of using advanced practice nurses for basic health care services. In addition, females were more likely to go to an advanced practice nurse, were less likely to believe that a doctor needed to be consulted before using a nurse, and were more likely to disagree with the statement that going to a nurse was too nontraditional. In conclusion, this study emphasized the broad-based community support for advanced practice nurses in primary care and developed a tool to market a community for the potential of opening a nurse-managed clinic
