2020 State Award for Excellence Recipients Announced

The American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) is pleased to announce the AANP State Award for Excellence recipients for 2020. Every year, AANP recognizes outstanding achievements by nurse practitioners (NPs) and NP advocates in each state.

Established in 1991, the State Award for Excellence recognizes an NP in each state who demonstrates excellence in clinical practice. In 1993, the state award for NP advocates was added to recognize the efforts of individuals who have made a significant contribution toward increasing the awareness and recognition of NPs. Examples of past recipients of this award have been physicians, legislators, educators, etc. NPs are also eligible for the advocate award for non-clinical practice initiatives related to leadership, precepting, policy, politics, research, education or community affairs.

Congratulations to the 2020 AANP State Award winners!
