AANP is home to a wealth of information about NPs and their practices and is the only comprehensive database of NPs in the U.S. AANP research is an essential resource for understanding how NPs are shaping the future of health care.
“Being an AANP member gives you a lot of opportunities you wouldn't have otherwise, like the ability to get involved in things like research and taking surveys and having your voice heard.”
