AANP National Public Awareness Campaign Hits the Airwaves
A national public awareness campaign, "We Choose NPs,” was
launched by AANP to highlight the role of nurse practitioners in increasing
access to health care and informing patients of their choice in health care
providers. AANP members—participate in the national campaign by making sure your practice information is current on NPFinder.com.
Featured in the national campaign, NPFinder.com is an easy way for patients to find
an NP in their area. Thanks to a recent update, it takes just seconds to add or
update your practice details. As a free benefit of AANP membership, you can add
up to three practice sites. Add your info to NPFinder today.
The awareness campaign features television ads
airing nationally on Fox and
Friends, CNN and MSNBC and in select markets on Good Morning America, The Today Show and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, as
well as on radio ads in key markets. The campaign will be supported by a
patient-focused website and blog, WeChooseNPs.org, as well as a robust program of
digital advertising, media relations and events designed to reach consumers
