National Nurse Practitioner Week (November 9-15) is receiving recognition nationwide, because NPs are more than just health care providers. They are mentors, educators, researchers, and administrators whose participation in health policy activities at the local, state, national, and international levels helps to advance the role of the NP and ensure that professional standards are maintained. We're pleased to report that 25 proclamations recognizing 2014 NP Week have been signed by governors to date. Don't let your state be blue! Be sure to share your NP Week pictures and proclamations with firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy #NPWeek!
