FAANP Career Enrichment Program

Preparing the Next Generation of Nurse Practitioner (NP) Leaders

The Fellows of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (FAANP) are proud to connect NPs with Fellows who are leaders in their field and are willing to share their expertise to promote the career development of others. Whether you’re interested in becoming a mentor or mentee, AANP invites you to discover the mutually rewarding benefits of the FAANP Career Enrichment Program.

About the FAANP Career Enrichment Program

If you are seeking a mentor to work with on a one-to-one basis to enhance your professional and personal growth, consider applying for the FAANP Career Enrichment Program. After you submit your online application, the FAANP Mentorship Committee will try to best match applicants with a Fellow of AANP, as indicated by the expertise best fitting your stated needs. When a match has been identified, applicants will be notified via email and will be provided with the identified mentor’s contact information to facilitate dyadic communication and plan development that works best for the individual mentor-mentee teams.

The program is not a pathway to Fellowship, nor is it appropriate for NPs enrolled in formal educational programs (DNP, PhD, etc.).

The application period is currently closed and will open early 2023.
