Nurse Practitioners Vote To Form New National Membership Organization

The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and The American College of Nurse Practitioners will consolidate, creating The American Association of Nurse Practitioners

AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the American College of Nurse Practitioners announced they are moving forward with plans to consolidate effective January 1, 2013. The combined organization will now be known as the American Association of Nurse Practitioners or AANP. With approximately 40,000 members, AANP will serve as the largest professional membership organization in the country for nurse practitioners of all specialties.

Leaders from both the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the American College of Nurse Practitioners will play key roles in governing the new organization.  As of November 19 th, David Hebert, who has been Chief Executive Officer of the American College of Nurse Practitioners, began serving as CEO of AANP.  Dr. Angela Golden, currently serving as President of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, will retain her position through June 2013.  Dr. Ken Miller, currently the American College of Nurse Practitioners' president-elect, will become the co-president with Dr. Golden at the AANP conference in June 2013.

The consolidation comes at a time when fewer physicians are pursuing primary care medicine and nurse practitioners are playing an increasingly critical role in providing access to high-quality primary, acute and specialty care. This is even more urgent with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act moving forward, adding 30 million Americans to the rolls of the insured.

By consolidating, the new AANP will add a strong, unified voice to the growing movement working to ensure nurse practitioners can practice to their fullest potential, thus best serving patients and their families.
