Advocacy

Advocacy Center

NAPNAP's Advocacy Center is a powerful tool for both members and visitors interested in child health and advanced practice nursing. Learn more about federal and state legislation affecting our members and their patients. You can quickly find information about your elected officials to send them your thoughts — using prepared letters or writing your own. Use your constituent voice to influence your legislators on federal or state bills.

Federal Policy

Guided by NAPNAP’s Health Policy Agenda, our federal policy efforts include participating in over 15 high-level collaboratives focused on advanced practice nursing and child health, tracking federal legislation important to our association and members, reviewing and commenting on regulations affecting our members and their patients, and advocating on issues.

State Policy

NAPNAP supports our 49 chapters and members advocating for advanced practice nursing and child health in their states by providing resources such as online state advocacy centers, monthly conference calls to discuss challenges and successes, a mentor program and leadership development opportunities.
