If you’re interested in the brain, spinal cord, nerves or muscles, AANP has a place for you. The Neurology Specialty Practice Group (SPG) offers a unique opportunity to interactively collaborate with colleagues who share interest or clinical expertise in neurology. As an SPG member, you’ll have access to a cutting-edge, online forum where you can engage in discussions, document sharing and knowledge exchange with fellow NPs. Come learn, share and help progress the development of theory and practice in neurology.
It is an honor to serve as co-chair for the Neurology SPG. In lecturing across the country for my necessary NP reviews and workshops, I usually hear from NP graduates that neurology is a struggle. Similarly, my devoted NP students at The Catholic University of America anticipate complexity, challenge and fear in dealing with complex neurological patients. My hope is to help guide, motivate and stimulate all of you considering a neurology path. Thanks to all of you already diving into this group of very rewarding patients. My clinical background in a Johns Hopkins Movement disorders practice, internal medicine and elder care will be my reference points in exchanging ideas in our group. Please know that the teacher in me values all that you bring to our discussions. I, too, will learn from you. Welcome!
Welcome to the Neurology Specialty Practice Group! Having worked in various settings caring for patients with neurological and neurosurgical conditions, I am excited to serve as the Co-Chair of this neurology group. Peer groups are essential to facing the challenges of neurology practice, and the aim of this peer group is to facilitate networking between NPs, improve professional development and education of neurology NPs, and identify efficient practice models for best utilization of the neurology NP workforce. We’re all committed to the role of neuroscience NP, and, by focusing on these key elements, we can improve both patient care and NP role satisfaction. Please stick around and join the conversation in the Neurology SPG!
