Connecting with NPs in your state and region can provide you the opportunity to collaborate with others who share your experiences and to work with others who share your passion for removing practice barriers. That’s why AANP was organized into 11 regions, with elected directors who serve on the board and represent NPs from their region.
AANP members also elect state representatives for each of the 50 states, Washington, D.C., U.S. territories and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
AANP is organized into 11 regions, each comprised of states within that geographic area. Each region is represented by a director, and each state includes one or more representatives elected by AANP members. Learn more about your region, including information about your Regional Director, State Representative and NP Organization members.
The prestigious AANP State Award for Excellence is granted each year to deserving NPs and NP advocates.
In addition to 11 regional directors elected by AANP members, the Board of Directors also includes four elected officers:
