Let the American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) Help Get Your Career Off to the Right Start
Welcome to the nurse practitioner (NP) community! As you begin your career, AANP membership gives you access to networking opportunities, free continuing education (CE) and practice resources to help with the clinical and business sides of practicing as an NP. Your membership also allows AANP to continue representing your interests to legislators as we work to support and advance the NP role.
To join AANP as a Career Starter member, you must be a newly graduated NP who is in the first year of your career. Membership as a Career Starter member is limited to one year, after which you will renew as an NP member or Licensed NP Student member.
Career Starter members have the right to vote in national and state elections.
Career Starter members desiring to seek state or national office must maintain AANP membership in good standing for the 12 months prior to the date on which the call for nominations begins.
