April is here and our annual conference is quickly approaching! We are excited to head to Indianapolis, IN to host the 44th Annual NONPF Conference. Last year's conference held in Washington, DC was a great success and we look forward to carrying the momentum into 2018. NONPF will focus attention on the future of NP education and has identified a few key objectives:

  • Discuss nurse practitioner education for the clinician of the future;
  • Explore innovations and strategies for nurse practitioner educators; and
  • Describe how leadership, policy, and research strengthen NP education.

We look forward to releasing more details about the conference as we continue to finalize details. Please continue to check back as we get closer.
