In recognition of the 50th anniversary of the inaugural Nurse Practitioner (NP) program, the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) is honoring these health care providers during National Nurse Practitioners Week, Nov. 8-14. The first nurse practitioner program was established at the University of Colorado (Boulder, Colo.) and now, there are over 200,000 NPs licensed to practice in the U.S. In 2013, Gardner-Webb University established the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program track as part of the Hunt School of Nursing’s Master of Science in Nursing.
