The National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties

The leader in quality nurse practitioner education

The National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF) is the only organization specifically devoted to promoting quality nurse practitioner (NP) education at the national and international levels.  Starting in 1974 as a small group of educators meeting to develop the first NP curriculum guidelines, NONPF has evolved as the leading organization for NP faculty sharing the commitment of excellence in NP education.  Today, the organization represents a global network of NP educators.

NONPF has achieved broad recognition for its leadership role in developing and maintaining NP educational resources.  First released in 1990 and subsequently updated in 1995, 2000, 2002, and 2006, the NONPF domains and core competencies for NP practice have provided guidance to curriculum development across NP programs.  NONPF has also led the development of entry-level competencies for NP specialty practice and of national guidelines for NP educational programs.  These seminal documents support the preparation of highly qualified health professionals.

NONPF provides valuable resources and enhances the promotion and tenure of NP faculty.

The 41st Annual Meeting is over, but we will soon post highlights from the meeting.  Plan to join us in Seattle, WA, next April 12-17 for the 42nd Annual Meeting.  The Call for Abstracts will be live in June.
