AUSTIN, TX -- The Fellows of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (FAANP) will induct 63 nurse practitioner (NP) leaders into the FAANP in June 2018 (view 2018 FAANP Fellows). The new FAANP members will continue the tradition of impacting national and global health through their outstanding contributions.
The American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) will honor this year's FAANP inductees at a ceremony and dinner on Thursday, June 28, during the AANP 2018 National Conference at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.
The FAANP program was established in 2000 to recognize nurse practitioner leaders who have made outstanding contributions to health care through clinical practice, research, education or policy. Fellows of AANP are visionaries and, as such, hold an annual think tank to strategize about the future of nurse practitioners and health care. The new Fellows will continue to demonstrate leadership and contribute to the mission of AANP.
The American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) is the largest professional membership organization for nurse practitioners (NPs) of all specialties. It represents the interests of the more than 248,000 licensed NPs in the U.S. AANP provides legislative leadership at the local, state and national levels, advancing health policy; promoting excellence in practice, education and research; and establishing standards that best serve NP patients and other health care consumers.
