Each year, one week in November is declared National Nurse Practitioner Week. The occasion is not only a great opportunity to recognize the many contributions of nurse practitioners, but also to promote awareness of NPs and the California Association for Nurse Practitioners.
NP Week 2019 takes place November 10-16.
The single most important way to promote NP awareness is through district office visits with your local State Assemblymembers and Senators. NP Week is certainly an ideal time to conduct such outreach, but it is vital that such efforts continue year-round. Contact your local CANP chapter leaders for more details on how to build on the spirit of NP Week in a way that truly impacts the future of the NP profession.
