AANP Statement on Gun Violence

Posted over 2 years ago by Laura Hildebrand

The Voice of the Nurse Practitioner®

Dear AANP members,

The American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) stands with the families and friends whose loved ones were killed and injured in the mass shootings over the weekend in both El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. It’s unfortunate that, yet again, we are calling for this issue to be addressed by our policymakers across the nation and in Washington D.C. Nurse practitioners (NPs) are passionate in their care for patients and are advocates for prevention.

With this in mind, AANP has issued a statement on gun violence. Please take a moment to visit the AANP website to read this important message.

Sincerely,

Sophia L. Thomas DNP, FNP-BC, PPCNP-BC, FNAP, FAANP
AANP President
