The National Association of Neonatal Nurse Practitioners

Established in 2007 and governed by an elected body, the National Association of Neonatal Nurse Practitioners (NANNP) is the unified voice of neonatal nurse practitioners (NNPs) and neonatal clinical nurse specialists (CNSs). NANNP strives to address the unique workforce and professional practice issues of neonatal APRNs through its commitment to leadership, expertise, and community. NANNP develops publications for APRNs. While NANNP members receive NANN member benefits, NANNP provides its members with exclusive benefits designed just for APRNs.
