Faculty, staff, students, alumni and preceptors of Frontier Nursing University (FNU) attended the 2022 AANP National Conference from June 21 to June 26 in Orlando, Fla. The AANP National Conference is the largest nurse practitioner conference in the United States! FNU is excited to highlight the many FNU community members who presented or were recognized and received awards during this year’s conference. We commend all of these individuals for their excellent work as nurse practitioner leaders!

In addition to our faculty and students, many FNU alumni members also presented during the conference.
Students Edalyn Shaw, Yasmin Alejandro, and Norah Ezike attended the conference with FNU faculty member Thomas George as part of FNU’s Professional Organizational Mentoring Program (POMP). POMP offers underrepresented nurse-midwifery students and nurse practitioner students the opportunity to be mentored by faculty members at designated conferences, such as the AANP National Conference. It expands students’ learning, educational and professional experiences.
FNU hosted an Alumni & Friends Breakfast Reception where alumni, faculty, staff, students and preceptors were able to gather, reconnect and share the work they are doing. Our exhibit booth was busy with prospective students connecting with the FNU community. Many people were able to stop by and take photos with our photo booth and our Top-Ranked Master’s Program banner.
It was great to be back in person again, and we can’t wait to see everyone again at the AANP National Conference next year in New Orleans!
