FNPN Members Win Award for Nurse Practitioner Excellence
Two FNPN members received prestigious awards during the AANP 2013 National Conference held June 19-23, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Doreen Cassarino, MSN, ARNP, FNP-BC, BC-ADM, DNPc, FNPN President, was the recipient of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) 2013 State Award for Advocacy and Alicia Gill Rossiter, MSN, ARNP, PNP-BC, FNP received the State Award for Nurse Practitioner Excellence.
The State Award for Nurse Practitioner Excellence, founded in 1991, recognizes a nurse practitioner (NP) in a state who demonstrates excellence in practice. In 1993, the State Award for Nurse Practitioner Advocate was added to recognize the efforts of individuals who have made a significant contribution toward increasing the awareness and acceptance of the NP.
Congratulations to both on receiving these well-deserved honors.
