Explore special events, networking opportunities and resources developed specifically to complement your national conference experience! The American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) is here to support your journey every step of the way — from before you enroll in your nurse practitioner (NP) program through graduation and beyond.
When: Tuesday, July 13, 2-3 p.m. ET (1-2 p.m. CT)
Speakers: Fellows of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (FAANP)
Calling all NP students: Come meet AANP Fellows and hear about a day in the life of NPs. Learn the “ins and outs” of how to manage your practice from day to day, including time management, scheduling, documentation, review of diagnostic tests and patient call backs.
If you cannot make it to the live event on July 13, the session will be recorded and made available on demand for the remainder of the conference period.
While the NP community cannot meet in person this year, AANP understands that it is still important for students to create and develop relationships, both professionally and personally. The 2021 AANP National Conference includes a dedicated forum for you to do just that!
