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 high 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 recognizes that NPs provide a significant amount of care and that the education of NPs must be strong, relevant and innovative.  To this end, NONPF has continually provided support to educators through establishing competencies, methods of evaluation and by working with partner organizations to achieve excellence in NP education.  In addition, NONPF has worked on behalf of members to review, analyze and influence policy decisions that impact NP education and practice. 

We welcome you to explore our many resources and if you are not already a member, to become a member of NONPF.

Thirty-eight nurse practitioner (NP) stakeholders from across the nation gathered to have a critical dialog on moving all entry-level NP education to the DNP degree by 2025. Leaders represented nearly 20 practice, licensure, accreditation, certification, and educational organizations. Much of the discussion focused on preparation of the clinician for the future.
