The NNPRFTC offers programmatic accreditation for postgraduate nurse practitioner training programs, designed by NP postgraduate program directors, for NP postgraduate training directors. The NNPRFTC exists to support new and ongoing postgraduate training programs for nurse practitioners in the achievement and maintenance of the highest standards of rigor and quality, consistent with achieving the goal of an expert healthcare workforce prepared to meet the needs of patients and the society as a whole.
The NNPRFTC is inclusive of all individuals and organizations that are committed to the cause of advancing postgraduate training for NPs. It’s a growing network of healthcare organizations, united by shared standards. In 2019, NNPRFTC opened its dues based membership program.
What are the benefits? NNPRFTC’s dues-based membership program provides a platform for our community to network, to participate in sharing expertise, wisdom and best practices. We provide 12 topical discussion platforms; a library of relevant publications and presentations; and opportunities to contribute to robust member-only toolboxes for sharing methodologies, protocols, forms, etc. NNPRFTC sponsors quarterly meetings by video conference, which all members are invited to attend. Members will be eligible for discounted registration to NNPRFTC-sponsored events such as our annual conference.
Our goal is to be responsive to the needs of our members. As we grow as an organization and our resources allow, we plan to expand our services in response to the needs of our member stakeholders.
