2016 NP Week

Thank you to all who participated in NP Week November 13-19, 2016, and helped make it a great success! Governors and other elected officials from 42 states, D.C. and Guam signed documents recognizing NP Week and honoring nurse practitioners in their jurisdictions. This is a new record and includes signed proclamations from 39 state governors! Thanks to your enthusiastic support, AANP's messages reached approximately 30 million viewers on social media.

We look forward to celebrating NP Week with you again on November 12-18, 2017. Last year's resource guide is available for those seeking early inspiration for the annual celebration.
