Updates provided by Membership Chair, Susan Vacca, PhD, RN, CPNP-PC
The GNY Chapter is working to increase membership in multiple ways. Outreach efforts have focused on student nurse practitioners, members whose memberships have lapsed, and members whose membership is due for renewal. The GNY Chapter works closely with nursing schools to disseminate the importance of both National and Local chapter involvement through classroom presentations and in the clinical setting. In addition, we have partnerships with local hospitals to promote membership at advanced practice meetings. Grassroots efforts such as word of mouth and personal emails to remind members whose membership is expiring or has lapsed is ongoing.
Our members include national child care experts, respected authors, distinguished faculty and practicing professionals representing many facets of pediatric health care delivery, including:
- Primary and Acute Care Pediatric Nurse Practitioners
- Family Nurse Practitioners
- School NPs
- Neonatal NPs
- Clinical Nurse Specialists
- Pediatric Nurse Consultants
- Pediatric Nurses
- PNP/FNP Faculty
- PNP/FNP Students
For those who are not nurse practitioners, nurse practitioner students or pediatric nurses, we offer our associate membership.
Whether it’s access to CE courses, advocating for recognition and credibility of your profession or exclusive discounts on nationwide conferences, NAPNAP provides its members with many opportunities for growth, achievement and professional excellence. See our member benefits section!
