Dear members,

FNPN is sorry to announce that Armando Riera has given his resignation as membership chairperson, due to family reasons.

We would like to thank Pamela Johnson for accepting the position of membership chair.  Pamela was appointed by the board of directors according to FNPN bylaws.  

Pamela was introduced to nursing as a career in 1978, in one of the first pilot programs designed to certify nursing assistants trained through vocational education in Broward County, Florida. Licensure as a Practical Nurse afforded opportunity to obtain credentials as an Associate and Baccalaureate prepared Registered Nurse prior to becoming an Advance Registered Nurse Practitioner in 2004. Individual biological psychological & social needs of individuals are priorities in practice.

She was inducted in to the Florida Nurses Association in 1990; Appointed Vice Chair, then Chair of the By-Laws Committee 2001 – 2004; Remained committed to maximizing the Profession of Advanced Practice Nursing.

Her goals for the FNPN include: 1) Optimizing roles and functions of NPs as Professional Partners in Practice and, 2) Through professional alliances maximize use of Nurse Practitioners as Primary Care Providers in Florida.
