National Nurse Practitioner Week is coming up in November, and Frontier Nursing University (FNU) is celebrating by hosting a free virtual event dedicated to nurse practitioners. From November 12-18, the “Mission Focused: Nurse Practitioners Answering the Call” virtual event will explore the experiences of NPs who are passionate leaders committed to better care for families, women, and rural and underserved populations. All sessions are free and easy to join at Frontier.edu/NPWeek.
National Nurse Practitioner Week is held annually to celebrate exceptional health care providers and to remind lawmakers of the importance of allowing NPs to practice to the full extent of their experience and education. There are approximately 222,000 NPs currently licensed in the U.S. (Source: aanp.org)
