  • “As a new NP with less than 1 year of experience, I felt I really benefited from this conference. I found a mentor that has checked in on me via texting since the conference. I was able to express my fears and anxieties to my fellow NPs and received great advice and encouraging words.”
  • “I feel welcomed when I attend GAPNA conferences, almost like a family member coming for a reunion. It’s a ‘welcome home’ of sorts! I’m a younger generation nurse practitioner, and I love hearing stories from the ones that have blazed the trail ahead of me. These are my sisters and brothers in the field, and they treat me with respect, which is much needed in the healthcare arena.”

Attending the yearly conference in new cities and seeing old friends is always the highlight of my year.”
  • “I can truly apply everything I learn in my daily practice.”
  • “Everything about this conference was impressive, the session topics, the speakers, the opportunities to network, the amazing hotel, the location. I learned so much and have already implemented some of my new-found knowledge into my practice. Thank you to all who worked so hard to make this experience amazing!”
