PURPOSE:   This study describes the practice settings and interventions of nurses who care for members of the adoption triad (AT; birth parents, adoptive parents, child).
DESIGN AND METHODS:   A 28-item, descriptive, cross-sectional survey was used.
FINDINGS:   Ninety-seven (97) nurses provided complete (65) or partial (32) responses. Most frequently reported practice settings were labor, delivery or postpartum unit, and pediatrics. Assessed needs varied by AT members. However, interventions for all members of the triad included emotional support and therapeutic communication.
PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS:   The unique placement of advanced practice nurses in various clinical settings allows for contact with members of the AT in vulnerable and crisis periods.
