Biggest Challenge Facing Nurse Practitioners and How AANP Can Help

I believe that barriers to NP practice is the biggest challenge facing NPs over the next decade. The life expectancy continues to rise and the number of patients that require care across the United States is growing. NPs provide timely, comprehensive, and safe care and are vital to our healthcare system. In fact, NPs are more likely to care for Medicare patients and practice in rural and underserved populations across the United States. We must continue to leverage the power of AANP to continue to advocate for full practice authority. We must continue to work with each state to expand NP practice authority and improve care for our patients.

Example of Initiative or Outcome of Leadership

I have the unique contribution of local, state, and national leadership experience. As a leader, I have demonstrated organization growth and effective management of resources despite the hardships of a pandemic. I utilize my active bedside experience to amass real world issues facing nurse practitioners and work collaboratively with others to solve them. I have experience incorporating the mission of AANP to accomplish a strategic direction and propel organizations and teams forward. My work ensures integrity, honesty, and respect while incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusion. One outcome of these skills was the continued growth of the Society of Critical Care Medicine Texas Chapter and the an institutional diversity initiative despite the pandemic.
