provides legislative leadership at the local, state and national levels, advancing health policy; promoting excellence in practice, education and research; and establishing standards that best serve NP patients and other health care consumers.
We look forward to working with the other BMA partners to advanced health care goals, providing high-quality, cost-effective, comprehensive, patient-centered care," said Cindy Cooke, DNP, FNP-C, FAANP, President of AANP
According to the most recent information on the state-level scope of practice environment provided by the AANP
(February 2015), NPs are classified within area of specialty as either "full practice" (19 states and the District of Columbia); "reduced practice" (19 states); or "restricted practice" (12 states).
According to AANP
, as of June 2014, there were more than 192,000 nurse practitioners in the U.
Since patients are the ultimate beneficiaries of the knowledge and skills of NPs, AANP
is pleased that we now have two peer-reviewed journals available for our members.
If an NP [in Alabama] has a patient who has pain, they are unable to really treat that patient appropriately because of the restrictions on their practice," says Penny Kaye Jensen, president of AANP
She is President-Elect of NPAM; previously Legislative Chair of NPAM a member Maryland Coalition of Nurse Practitioners; AANP
formed in 1985 to provide NPs with a unified way to network and advocate for NP issues and was the first national organization created for nurse practitioners of all specialties.

2004 State Leader Award, Randy remains a resource to other state NP groups mentoring NPs in crafting plans to introduce legislation, most recently Georgia, Alaska and Maryland.
The book's content is applicable to both AANP
and ANCC certification exams for the family nurse practitioner through an approach that involves "Fast Facts" and exam tips.
After analyzing sample AANP
exam questions and illustrating the logic of their correct solution, this study guide summarizes the symptoms, lab tests, and treatment of approximately 200 primary care disorders arranged by body system.
Like the AANP
, the AAPA has developed written standards and ethics.
