On January 1, 2013, the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (founded in 1985) and the American College of Nurse Practitioners (founded in 1995) came together to form the American Association of Nurse Practitioners™ (AANP), the largest full-service national professional membership organization for NPs of all specialties.
