The Mission Statement, Core Values and Strategic Pillars provide a framework for CANP's success. They were created by the Board of Directors and CANP staff during planning sessions held throughout 2023 as part of the development of the Association's 2023-2027 Strategic Plan.
CANP is the unifying voice and networking forum for nurse practitioners, providing expert guidance and advancing the nurse practitioner profession statewide. We are committed to:
Integrity: We are committed to honesty and transparency in everything we do.
Compassion: We act with kindness and consideration toward others.
Respect: We value individuals' experiences and perspectives.
Accountability: We demonstrate our ethics through our actions.
Collaboration: We embrace collaboration and encourage communication and feedback.
Inclusivity: We promote and support diversity, equity, and inclusion in all we do.
Innovation: We act with intention while encouraging creativity and new ideas through visionary leadership.
Membership engagement and growth.
Professional development and advancement.
Proactive legislative and regulatory advocacy.
Financial growth and sustainability.
CANP commits to align with anti-racism and social justice tenets in support of nurse practitioners as they bridge the gaps in health care and meet the needs of their patients. We pledge to look closely at our organization on every level to address the problems of systemic and individual racism. We recognize the adverse health effects of racism and social inequities. We are willing as individuals and as an association to acknowledge our implicit biases and to make changes to remedy racism and social injustice. Collectively and individually, we advocate for equitable, inclusive and compassionate health care for all people.

The California Association for Nurse Practitioners (CANP) provides a forum and unifying voice for more than 30,000 nurse practitioners statewide, often joining forces with other state and national organizations, to advance the profession and bridge health care needs. As the only association solely dedicated to advocating for nurse practitioners in California, we work to protect and expand the critical roles filled by NPs. As a conduit of information, we foster the dissemination of ideas, advice and standards of practice.
