President Mary Chesney, PhD, RN, CPNP, FAAN

NAPNAP is proud to have over 1300 student members in our organization, and we want to make certain that those of you who are students know what your benefits are and maximize your membership. The Affordable Care Act and other changes in today’s health care have created an increased demand for all of us as pediatric care providers. Student members are a valuable asset to our association because you are the future PNPs who will carry NAPNAP forward into our next decade. You will fill the need for quality pediatric care for our nation’s children.     

Your reduced dues of $105 for three consecutive years as a Student and the first year after completion of your NP or CNS program as a New Graduate entitle you to full benefits of NAPNAP membership, including the right to vote and elect NAPNAP’s leaders. Along with the valuable benefits of membership, we offer many opportunities for students and career transitioning members to find their next career move.

Our annual conference in sunny Las Vegas also offers a wide range of learning opportunities for students. Student members can register at a reduced rate of $250 before Jan. 30, 2015 and $275 after Jan. 30. At the conference, you can network with fellow students and faculty at NAPNAP’s Eighth Annual Student Reception and take Primary Care, Acute Care and Mental Health Certification Review Courses. Our Exhibit Hall offers opportunities for networking and career growth.

NAPNAP truly values its student members and appreciates that you have chosen to join our association. Let us know through your comments what you like about membership with NAPNAP and what we can do to make your membership experience better.
