About Nurse Practitioners (NPs)
NPs are quickly becoming the health care provider of choice for millions of Americans. As clinicians who assess, diagnose and treat acute and chronic diseases, as well as counsel, coordinate care and educate patients regarding their illnesses, NPs bring a comprehensive perspective to health care. Discover why Americans make more than visits to NPs annually.
With more than members, AANP is a community of individuals and organizations who are united by their commitment to provide exceptional patient care. Your collective voices form The Voice of the Nurse Practitioner® and strengthen your association’s ability to advocate for NPs and their patients. AANP offers a comprehensive portfolio of valuable membership benefits, so regardless of the membership type you choose, your investment can easily pay for itself.
Your association offers a variety of ways for NPs and organizations to participate in or conduct research, including the first online NP panel, NPInfluence. Data collection and survey procurement opportunities are available, and members can join the AANP Network for Research.
Whether you are a patient seeking an expert health care provider or an NP who wants to expand their patient panel, AANP’s NPFinder is a valuable resource! NPFinder is an online tool that helps health care consumers locate NPs in their community, and AANP members can list up to three practice sites there. Patients can quickly search for NPs by specialty, city, state or zip code and learn more about the services NPs provide.
Show your NP and association pride with a variety of fun, functional and fashionable products from the AANP Store. The selection changes periodically, so purchase your favorite items before they are gone!
