Founded by NANN in 2007, the National Association of Neonatal Nurse Practitioners (NANNP) is the only national association dedicated solely to neonatal nurse practitioners.
NANNP strives to improve care to neonates, infants, and their families by providing a forum for neonatal nurse practitioners’ communication on clinical and professional practice issues, education, advocacy, and research.
In June, the NANNP Council endorsed the Nurse Practitioner Perspective on Education and Post-Graduate Training as developed and provided by the NP Roundtable.
As the only NP population foci not represented in the NP Roundtable, the Council thanked the NP Roundtable for their work on behalf of all NPs. The American Association of Nurse Practitioners and the other members of the NP Roundtable were also thanked for addressing this important issue and NANNP looks forward to participating in these NP related endeavors in the future.

These publications establish the role of the advanced practice nurse and lay out a future vision for the role in the years ahead. NANNP thanks Suzanne Staebler, DNP APRN NNP-BC; Susan Meier, DNP APRN NNP-BC; Margaret Conway, MSN RNC NNP; and Gail Bagwell, MSN RN CNS, for their work on these important statements.
Check out these and all of NANNP's current position statements on the Publications page.
At NANN’s 29th Annual Educational Conference, the National Certification Corporation (NCC) held a 30-minute session entitled "NCC Certification: Understand Continuing Competency." Led by NCC President Robin Bissinger, PhD APRN NNP-BC FAAN, the session updated certified nurses and nurse practitioners on the continuing competency model for certification maintenance.
The NCC recorded their presentation and is now available for viewing for all NANN members. Click here to view the NCC session
