Child Health Policy Learning Collaborative - NAPNAP

Child Health Policy Learning Collaborative

Here at the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, we know that our members are experts in pediatrics and advocates for children. With our Child Health Policy Learning Collaborative (CHPLC), members can expand their knowledge about critical issues impacting their practices and profession. 

The CHPLC is open to all NAPNAP members and meets at 8 p.m. ET via webinar on the first Wednesday of every month from September through May to discuss policy trends and advocacy solutions on national, state and local levels. We invite guest speakers to address timely policy issues affecting our members and/or their patients. To be invited to the monthly call, please email
