A new wave of preceptors is signing on with Frontier Nursing University (FNU) as a result of many inquiries at the 2018 American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) Conference. FNU faculty and staff traveled to the Denver Convention Center on June 27-30 for the annual AANP event. For three days FNU exhibited at its booth, displaying information and taking inquiries.
With over 3,000 in attendance, FNU received dozens of inquiries as to how attendees could become involved in precepting at FNU.
As most of the AANP conference attendees are nurse practitioners (NPs), FNU faculty are encouraged that the NPs who inquired will become a vital part of the FNU student experience as preceptors.
Throughout the conference, several FNU faculty members and students presented posters and presentations:
- Poster: “The APN: Resources in the Face of Disaster”
Presenters: Dr. Diane John, Dr. Kate Moriarty, Dr. Charlotte Morris, Tamara Vasquez
- Presentation: “Rapid Fire: Caring for LGBT Patients: The Call for Culturally Competent Care”
Presenters: Dr. Joanne Keefe and Dr. Amber Littlefield
Poster: “Innovation in Care: Bringing Behavioral Health Services to the Primary Care Setting”
Presenter: Dr. April Dobroth
- Poster: “Medical Mission Revival: Meeting Unmet Medical Needs in Underserved, Underprivileged Areas of the U.S. While Providing NP Students an Innovative Clinical Experience”
Presenters: Dr. Stephanie Collins and Dr. Melanie Morrison
Two FNU students, Neander Tabingo and Jennifer McCammond, represented the PRIDE program and were integral in running the FNU booth.
During the conference, FNU also engaged its extensive network with a breakfast, inviting all Frontier alumni, students, faculty and preceptors to attend. FNU Clinical Director Dr. Irma Jordan and Associate Dean of Family Nursing Dr. Lisa Chappell spoke to the group of more than 40 who attended.
Brittney Edwards, Director of Marketing and Communications, took the opportunity to unveil FNU’s brand new Development Video. Genny Little was also introduced as Frontier’s Associate Director of Development and Alumni Relations. Her new role includes expanding the Wide Neighborhoods program, among many other items.
