American Academy of Nurse Practitioners State Awards for Excellence and Advocacy
One again, it is that time of the year to begin the nomination process for the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners State Awards for Excellence and Advocacy.

The Advocate State Award for Excellence is given annually to an individual who has made a significant contribution toward increasing awareness and acceptance of NPs. Examples of past recipients of this award have been physicians, legislators, educators, etc. NPs are also eligible for the advocate award for non-clinical practice initiatives related to leadership, policy, politics, research, education, or community affairs. Neither the nominator nor nominee must be an AANP member.
