In recognition of the 52nd 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. 12-18. The first nurse practitioner program was established at the University of Colorado (Boulder, Colo.), and now there are nearly 235,000 NPs licensed to practice in the U.S., with an additional 23,000 graduating each year. 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.
