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.

Transitioning to a Seamless, Integrated DNP NP Curriculum

The Board of Directors of NONPF, with the support of past president, is recruiting for a Chief Executive Officer to lead the organization.  Kitty Werner positioned the organization to be a significant resource to faculty as well as having a strong voice in policy.  The next leader of the organization will have much to build on in taking the organization to the next level of service, partnership and influence.

Update on Policy

The Department of Veteran's Affairs has issued it's final rule after receiving an unprecedented number of comments on APRN practice.  Three of the four APRN roles--NP, CNS, and CNM have been recognized to practice to the full extent of their education within the VA system.  We continue to have work to do to assist our CRNA colleagues to also be recognized.  To view the final rule click on:
