AUSTIN, TX (March 15, 2017) – The Fellows of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (FAANP) recently selected 67 nurse practitioner (NP) leaders for induction to FAANP in June 2017 (view 2017 FAANP Fellows). The new FAANP members will continue the tradition of impacting national and global health through their outstanding contributions.

The American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) will honor this year's FAANP inductees at a ceremony, followed by a soiree, on Thursday, June 22, during the AANP 2017 National Conference at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA.

The new Fellows will continue to demonstrate leadership and contribute to the mission of AANP.
