CHERRY HILL, NJ (August 2, 2012) - The National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) is pleased to announce it will open a satellite office in Washington D.C. on September 1, 2012 at 20 F St. NW, Suite 700, Washington D.C. 20001. This office will serve as the hub for all advocacy work for the Association. Staff and NAPNAP members may use this opportunity to make visits to Capitol Hill more convenient. The opening of the office coincides with a crucial election year with key legislation affecting the future of child health and the role of the advanced practice nurse.
NAPNAP is a strong advocate of promoting children’s health and is involved in local, state and national levels. The opening of the new office is a bold step for the Association, one that will increase our visibility in Washington D.C. Having a presence in D.C. enhances our ability to form strategic, collaborative alliances with other D.C.-based professional nursing and child health organizations. “Health Care Reform, particularly as it relates to Pediatric Nurse Practitioners and their patients is an important factor to NAPNAP’s decision to establish a physical presence in Washington D.C. In order to make an impact, it is critical that our organization and members make our presence known by actively visiting with key legislators to further promote our mission to improve child healthcare” said NAPNAP President, Susan Van Cleve, DNP, RN, CPNP-PC.
NAPNAP continues to honor its commitment to dedicate additional resources to advocate for you, your patients and your profession. NAPNAP works tirelessly to advocate for child health and the advanced practice nursing profession. It is our goal to work collaboratively and become more involved in visits to Capitol Hill.
Look for more information on the grand opening in the coming weeks.
