"AANP looks forward to bringing NPs and employers together with a one stop connection to the best career choices possible," said David Hebert, JD, CEO of American Association of Nurse Practitioners. "With a rise in the number of people with health insurance and the need for more providers to take care of these patients, there has never been a better time to be an NP."
"The new AANP JobCenter will be a critical industry resource for health care providers nationwide," said Tristan Jordan, Senior Vice President, Global Career Center Division at YourMembership.com. "We're pleased to support this initiative with industry leading technology, sales and marketing."
NPs provide patients with high quality, comprehensive, patient-centered primary, acute and specialty health care services. In addition to diagnosing and managing acute episodic and chronic illness, NPs also focus on health promotion, disease prevention, health education and counseling, guiding patients to make smarter health and lifestyle choices. Among their many services, NPs order, perform and interpret diagnostic tests such as lab work and x-rays; diagnose and treat acute and chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, infections and injuries; prescribe medications and other treatment; and manage a patient's care.
