To ensure its enduring availability to future generations of nurse practitioners (NPs), the American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) History Committee is dedicated to gathering, curating and preserving information and artifacts related to the history of the NP role and the professional associations that support it. Our rich history paints a picture of the great successes that NPs have achieved and the invaluable contributions we have made to the health of our nation. Preserving documents on a state-by-state, national and international level and developing a database which identifies where historical information is stored or archived will increase access to this information and serve as inspiration for future successes. The AANP History Committee wants to encourage all researchers and NP organizations to participate by continually adding to our historical knowledge base.
This section is dedicated to the rich and unique NP history that each state boasts. Check back regularly for new featured states!
