The Maryland Chesapeake chapter of NAPNAP serves Maryland and the greater area of bordering states and metropolitan areas. We are a regional chapter of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP). Our membership encompasses pediatric nurse practitioners (PNPs), family nurse practitioners (FNPs) and other clinicians whose professional interests include the health care field of pediatric nursing and medicine.

Our chapter welcomes current members, new members, students and visitors. We are a diverse, inclusive and involved group of NAPNAP chapter members who share the passion and desire to provide the best pediatric care possible in many settings and professional and voluntary roles.

We value all our members and cherish the professional relationships that are formed when a vested group of individuals join together and work toward:

  • Improving our ability to provide exemplary pediatric care through our shared goals of supporting and advocating for each other
  • Providing continuing educational opportunities
  • Conveying best practices and resources in pediatrics
  • Providing professional awareness and opportunities
  • Legislative activities and issues
  • Active community involvement
  • Student support, and more
