NORWALK, Conn., Oct. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica announced today a two-year partnership with the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP), to share content and expertise with readers of Contemporary Pediatrics.
The pediatric APRN community will join the Contemporary Pediatrics audience through the newly launched PNP Corner – an online destination for information, insights, and resources. Members of NAPNAP will also receive free access to the digital version of Contemporary Pediatrics, as well as its mobile app.
As a result of the partnership, Donna Hallas, PhD, CPNP, PNP-BC, PMHS, FAANP, has been named a member of the journal's Editorial Advisory Board, where she will help shape the content and direction of the brand. A Clinical Professor at New York University (NYU) College of Nursing and Coordinator of its Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Program, Dr. Hallas will provide a monthly commentary to NAPNAP members.
"This partnership symbolizes a mutual growing interest to serve the nurse practitioner community and, indirectly, children and families," said NAPNAP President Cathy Haut, DNP, CPNP-AC, CPNP-PC, CCRN. "Contemporary Pediatrics has been a respected pediatric journal for many years, providing expert clinical advice for practitioners through monthly literature reviews and critiques in its Journal Club, clinical case studies, discussion of unique and unusual presentations, and current pediatric health care news."
"This is a unique and timely partnership that reflects the new reality of pediatric healthcare," said Teresa McNulty, Group Content Director at UBM Medica, who manages Contemporary Pediatrics.
The National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) is the nation's professional association of pediatric nurse practitioners and advanced practice nurses dedicated to improving the quality of health care for infants, children, adolescents and young adults. Representing more than 8,000 healthcare practitioners nationwide with 17 special interest groups and 49 chapters, NAPNAP has been advocating for children's health since 1973.
