AANP Network for Research

AANPs Network for Research (AANPNR) is a practice-based research network that provides busy NPs with the opportunity to participate in research relevant to NPs and their patients. Whether you are interested in quick surveys or longer studies, the level of involvement is up to you.  All AANP members are welcome to join.

In addition to participation in network-sponsored projects, membership in AANPNR provides opportunities for members with like interests and practices to develop collaborative projects with network support.

AANPNR's objectives

  • Conduct practice-based research relevant to NPs and their patients
  • Facilitate translation of research to practice
  • Improve the practice of primary care and specialty care by NPs
  • Improve the health of patients

The AANPNR is directed by Michelle L. Cook, AANP's Associate Vice President of Research and is solely funded by the AANP.
