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.  The ad will also air on radio stations 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 nationwide.

It's a Wrap!

Thank you to the more than 5,000 nurse practitioners who attended the AANP 2018 National Conference in Denver June 26 – July 1. You made this conference an overwhelming success! For highlights of this year's conference, visit the Conference Call webpage.

In addition to over 300 sessions and hands-on workshops, AANP brought three of music’s brightest new bands directly to the conference for an unforgettable concert in support of Musicians On Call. The exhibit hall had an impressive turn out with 335 companies showcasing products and services for NPs and NP students. With your support, Newborns in Need received a generous charitable donation and onesies for newborns.

We look forward to seeing you in Washington, D.C., for the AANP 2019 Health Policy Conference February 3 – 5, 2019, and in Indianapolis for the AANP 2019 National Conference June 18 – 23, 2019.
