Established by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners in 2000, the Fellows of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (FAANP) program is dedicated to the global advancement of nurse practitioners (NPs) and the high-quality health care NPs deliver. By engaging recognized NP leaders who have made outstanding contributions to NP education, policy, clinical practice or research, and developing NP leaders of the future, FAANP is furthering the NP role while enhancing AANP's mission.
