Alaska Nurse Practitioners and Home Health Care
We have much to be proud and excited about with the news below. Only two other states, Maine and Rhode Island, have all of their members of Congress as cosponsors of the Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act of 2013.
Please take time to send a thank you note to our members of Congress. This is an easy task using the instructions and link in the note below. With over 47,000 members the American Association of Nurse Practitioners has amazing power, resources and visibility to make the future better for nurse practitioners. Even more importantly we have the power to improve the health care of all Americans through our action and involvement.
Thank you all for your time and efforts. Please encourage your colleagues to join AANP so we can make our goal of 51% or more membership to truly say that AANP represents the majority of nurse practitioners in Alaska and the country.
