WELCOME to our NC: Charlotte Chapter Webpage
In 2002, the NC-Charlotte Chapter of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners was organized to support the growing number of pediatric nurse practitioners and advanced practice nurses in our area of the state. Our mission statement is threefold:

  1. To promote and foster the objectives and purposes of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners.

  2. To develop and/or sponsor programs for the ongoing education of pediatric nurse practitioners, school nurse practitioners, family nurse practitioners, neonatal nurse practitioners, and clinical nurse specialists in the Charlotte area.

  3. To support and facilitate state and local programs improving the quality of health care for infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. 

More About Us 

We provide education CE opportunities, chapter business, legislative updates and networking with other nurse practitioners in the Charlotte area. We have been active volunteers with community programs supporting child and adolescent health for 20 years! We are passionate about optimal health care for children and families.
