Student Ambassadors - NAPNAP

Student Ambassadors

Help Build the NAPNAP Community

We believe our members’ personal recommendations and referrals are the best way to connect with PNP and FNP students to join the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) community of experts in pediatrics and advocates for children. When you become a Student Ambassador, you have the opportunity to provide your fellow students with a professional home focused on supporting members as they progress through their careers.

Student Ambassadors spread the word about NAPNAP and its student member benefits through on campus and virtual events, meet-ups, social media and other networking opportunities. We supply training, materials and ongoing support to assist Ambassadors in their recruitment campaigns.
