AANP Launches Public Awareness Campaign

The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) has launched a national campaign to raise public awareness of the critical role nurse practitioners play in our country’s healthcare system.  With President Obama’s new healthcare law, expansion of health insurance is expected to increase to 32 million Americans over the next 10 years.  The campaign led by the AANP strives to assure Americans and insurance providers that Nurse Practitioners are fully qualified and prepared to provide high-quality, cost effective, medical care to Americans.

The topic of a physician shortage has become a significant area of discussion and concern.  Jill Gilliland, President of Melnic Consulting Group says, “Pediatric Nurse Practitioners are an effective alternative to physicians as independent practitioners. Their high competency level allows them to be collaborative team members, and they play a key role in providing a solution to busy practice environments.”

The AANP aims to raise public awareness through the web, print, television, radio and community involvement.  Learn how you can get involved!
