The NP Professional Practice Compendium


The NP Professional Practice Compendium is a quarterly online, peer- reviewed continuing education publication.  The intent is for the articles to have a direct application to professional practice, whether addressing clinical conditions or other areas such as political advocacy and practice management.  Each issue will be devoted to a topical area.

The Compendium is published online, with individual articles and the post-tests accessible through the AANP CE Center. The Compendium is available to all free of charge and the CE credit is free to all members.
