An Organization Focused on Advanced Practice Nursing
According to the American Nurses Association, advanced practice registered nurses are “nurses who have met advanced educational and clinical practice requirements, and often provide services in community-based settings. APRNs’ services range from primary and preventive care to mental health to birthing to anesthesia.” The ISAPN has been designed to advocate specifically for these advanced practice nurses.
