State Legislation/Regulation

State Legislation/RegulationAANP believes a fully empowered NP community will transform patient care, and that state legislation must be updated to reflect the expertise NPs bring to the health care system. We actively identify legislation, support state-level NP policy initiatives and develop policy resources that cultivate strong NP leaders and sound health policy.
