Three FNPN Members Selected for AANP Future Leaders Program
The American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP), the largest national professional membership organization for nurse practitioners (NPs) of all specialties, is pleased to announce that FNPN President Dr. Doreen Cassarino, DNP, ARNP, Naples, FL; Dr. George Peraza-Smith, DNP, ARNP, Co-Chair of the Florida NP Coalition, Tampa, FL; and Amanda Chaney, MSN, ARNP, FNPN Legislative Representative in Jacksonville and Mayo Clinic Liver Transplant NP have been selected to participate in the prestigious AANP Future Leaders Program.
The newly launched 12-month program is designed to develop the next generation of NP leaders through a variety of initiatives that will provide a broad vision of the NP role in the current and future health care environment. Those selected for the program are relatively early in their NP careers, serving in clinical, administrative, and education roles, with demonstrated potential to assume increasing national leadership both within AANP and throughout the nation.
The three FNPN Members will join 15 other participants in early October in Naples, Florida for an initial two-day formal training focusing on leadership development and other components of the program. Visit aanp.org for more information about the AANP Future Leaders Program.
