AANP Communities

Interactive Groups Based on Your Practice Specialty and Professional Interests

The American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) offers a number of members-only communities organized around therapeutic areas and professional interests. Designed to support discussion, document sharing, collaboration and networking, each AANP Community maintains a dedicated online forum where you can instantly connect with like-minded NP colleagues and share information.

AANP Communities include:

  • Specialty Practice Groups (SPGs), which support clinical practice and cover specific therapeutic areas. AANP members may join an SPG for just $20 each annually, prorated to your membership term.
  • Specialty Interest Groups (SIGs), which support professional development and practice management topics such as international nursing and health informatics and telehealth. AANP members may join an SIG for just $20 each annually, prorated to your membership term.

All AANP members are encouraged to join an AANP Community, or several, to deepen your knowledge, expand your network and help progress the development of theory and practice in key areas of health care.
