Federal- and state-level legislation has a direct impact on the nurse practitioner (NP) role — and the patients NPs serve. That’s why the American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) government affairs team represents NPs and their patients on critical issues related to licensure, access to care, patient safety, health care reform, reimbursement and other concerns. AANP members are a vital part of The Voice of the Nurse Practitioner®, strengthening the association’s representation of NPs and patients on critical issues.
Become familiar with AANP’s position on education, regulation, policy and patient care. Track policy changes at the federal level and in your state or region. Find answers to frequently asked legislative questions. Then, use that knowledge to make a measurable difference in the health of your community by advocating for the NP role and for your patients at the state and national level.
