GAPNA is pleased to announce Izabela Kazana, DNP, AGPCNP-BC as the 2017 Health Affairs Scholarship Recipient.
Attending the annual 2017 AANP Health Policy Conference helped me understand how Nurse Practitioners from different states support the uniform legislation to promote consistency in the NP practice.
It was exciting to be part of coordinated efforts to educate legislators on the role of NPs in achieving positive changes in access to care, efficiency of health care systems, and better health outcomes with potential cost savings for all.
The conference was not only a unique opportunity to network with NPs experienced in the health policy and legislation but also a chance to learn about their perseverance with taking actions.
In my future involvement in health affairs, I would like to continue collaboration with NP colleagues to find new approaches and solutions to current health policy concerns as well as to long-standing issues such as access to therapeutic shoes for diabetic patients.
