National Nurse Practitioner Week will be observed Nov. 12-18.

This special week offers numerous opportunities to bring recognition to the role of the nurse practitioner (NP) and increase awareness of the exceptional care that NPs provide.

The American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) offers a 2017 NP Resource Guide that includes a proclamation, sample news release, talking points, NP fact sheet, community activities, media interview guide, posters, photos, guidelines for writing a letter to the editor, and more.

According to AANP, "National Nurse Practitioner Week is held annually to celebrate these exceptional health care providers and to remind lawmakers of the importance of removing outdated barriers to practice so that NPs will be allowed to practice to the full extent of their experience and education."

To access the 2017 NP Resource Guide and learn more about this annual observance, visit the AANP website.
