Whether you are a brand-new NP or you have been practicing for a while, the AANP has likely done something that has made your job easier. Advocating for full practice authority, advancing nurse research, or developing more nurse leaders, the AANP does a lot of different things for a lot of NPs.

What does the AANP actually do?

So many new grad NPs graduate without fully understanding AANP. In this special one-on-one interview with Stephen Ferrara, President-elect of the AANP, we got to ask him questions that new nurse practitioners in our community had about AANP. We talked about what the AANP is (and what it isn’t), about how the NP educational system works on a large scale (and some key differences between nursing education and medical education), and current issues in our profession. We also talk about the challenges of ordering diabetic shoes as an NP, why it is challenging, and how long this has been an issue (really).

Join us and learn about the AANP’s current and upcoming initiatives; some of their possible solutions to the challenge of finding a preceptor; some of the barriers to NP practice that are on their radar, and – maybe most importantly – how you can get involved, how the AANP can help you as an NP, and how you can help others in our profession.
