Membership FAQs

When you join the California Association for Nurse Practitioners (CANP), you enter a close-knit community where information and ideas are freely exchanged, helping members stay at the top of their profession and play a powerful role in health care today.

All members are encouraged to get involved, and your level of engagement is entirely up to you. Some of the opportunities include:

You can renew your membership by completing and submitting the online renewal form.

CANP has a long history of being actively engaged in the legislative process, educating legislators and policy makers about the role nurse practitioners play in California's health care delivery system, and protecting and expanding NP practice. Through its advocacy efforts, CANP helps thousands of nurse practitioners speak as one, providing a collective voice in the State Capitol.

Our Annual Educational Conference is the state’s only event focused exclusively on continuing education for advanced practice nursing. Each year, CANP leaders work with members to design a program of courses featuring some of the most influential figures in the industry. That’s in addition to other educational opportunities that CANP membership delivers.

The benefits of CANP membership include discounts on products, services and resources vital to you and your practice. These include items that make routine tasks easier, tools for managing your practice, and information channels that expand your knowledge base – as well as your career opportunities.

You do not automatically become a member of AANP when you join CANP. 

CANP accepts personal and business checks, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. We also offer members the ability to pay in four equal quarterly payments. You can even arrange automatic renewal payments – for the full year or on a quarterly basis – by selecting the Auto Pay option when choosing your member type. 

Membership expires one year from the join date.
