Nominations are now open for the prestigious 2022 American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) State Award for Excellence, which recognizes outstanding clinical practice and advocacy. Celebrate the 2021 award recipients and nominate an exceptional colleague for the 2022 awards – all from one location.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to nominate deserving nurse practitioners (NPs) and advocates.
The NP State Award for Excellence is given annually to an individual NP in each state who has demonstrated excellence in clinical practice.
The Advocate State Award for Excellence is given annually to an individual in each state who has made a significant contribution toward increasing awareness and recognition of NPs.
