Faculty, staff, students, alumni and preceptors of Frontier Nursing University (FNU) attended the 2023 AANP National Conference from June 20 to June 25 in New Orleans, LA. The AANP National Conference is the largest nurse practitioner conference in the United States! With a focus on “Restoring, Recharging and Renewing the Nurse Practitioner Community,” the conference offered something for every nurse practitioner.
FNU is excited to highlight the many FNU community members who presented, received scholarships, and were recognized during this year’s conference. We commend all of these individuals for their excellent work as nurse practitioner leaders!

FNU Mentoring Program
In an effort to create even stronger interaction and connection between students and faculty, FNU’s Professional Organization Mentoring Program (POMP) was created in 2018. POMP matches FNU faculty with underrepresented nurse practitioner and nurse-midwifery students to provide support and mentorship. The program allows students to join a professional organization in their field, as well as gives them the opportunity to attend a professional conference with their mentors, with conference registration and professional membership fees covered. The POMP attendees at AANP included:
FNU Alumni & Friends Breakfast Reception
FNU hosted our annual Alumni & Friends Breakfast Reception where FNU community members gathered to reconnect and share the work they are doing. The breakfast is a wonderful event where we have the opportunity to recognize the preceptors, faculty, alumni and students who make our nurse practitioner program great.
