Established in 1973, we were the first professional society for nurse practitioners and remain the only national organization dedicated to both advancing the APRN role and improving the quality of health care for infants, children and adolescents. Our esteemed members include national child health experts, respected authors, distinguished faculty and practicing clinicians who represent many facets of pediatric health care delivery.
