The FAANP Mentorship Program connects motivated, less-experienced NPs with Fellows who are both leaders in their field and willing to share their expertise to promote the career development of others. Whether you’re interested in becoming a mentor or mentee, we invite you discover the mutually rewarding benefits of FAANP mentorship.
About the FAANP Mentorship Program
Founded in 2006, the FAANP Mentorship Program is grounded in the belief that mentorship should:
Mutually benefit both the mentee and mentor
Focus on helping and guiding toward professional goals
Involve time, energy, initiative and follow-through to be successful
Involve mentors as generous learning brokers
Involve mentees committed to achieving defined objectives
Since its founding, the FAANP Mentorship Program has contributed to significant achievements in programs related to health policy, research, program development, publication and presentation skills and leadership.

Policy and Advocacy
You will be expected to attend the national conference in Indianapolis June 18-23, 2019, to meet your mentor and establish the pattern of the mentorship process that will last for the year between meetings.
Short, periodic interim reports of progress will be expected 2-3 times during the mentorship. Instructions will be sent to the mentee via email. It is expected that these brief updates will be developed collaboratively by the mentee and mentor.
You will be expected to design and present a poster describing the achievement of your objectives during the AANP 2020 National Conference.
You and your mentor commit to clear and growth-producing communication.
No remuneration will be required to the mentor for the services provided.
This program is NOT a preparation or to be considered a pathway to achieving Fellowship in AANP.
