PARSIPPANY, N.J., June 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Point of Care Network (POCN), the largest community of Nurse Practitioners(NPs) and Physician Assistants (PAs) in America, has opened nominations for America's Top NPs, with the goal of recognizing and celebrating influential and impactful NPs practicing today. The closing date for the nominations will be October 11th, 2018
NPs are on the front lines of providing efficient and comprehensive primary care treatment across all therapeutic categories. Their significant role is more necessary as there is an increase in an aging patient population, shortage of Primary Care physicians, and the now, 32 million patients newly covered by insurance. As the influence and impact of NPs continues to be crucial to the quality of care in the U.S., POCN Board Member and America's Top NP Mimi Secor agrees that, "The time is now to recognize Advanced Clinicians/NPs for the work they're doing to impact healthcare today." Secor further says that "Finally, there's a place through America's Top NPs that allows us to do it in a way that helps recognize and reward one another for the work that we do in serving our patients."
While physicians have been able to nominate their peers for various "Top Doctor" listings, this is the first time that NPs have been able to recognize the top members of their own profession. Together with a panel of illustrious healthcare industry influencers, POCN will select 10 Nurse Practitioners as winners of the 2018 America's Top NP program. Advanced Clinicians, Physician Assistants (PAs), Nurse Practitioners (NPs) and Certified Nurse Educators (CNEs), are invited to nominate an NP who is demonstrating excellence in care quality and delivery, professional and practice development, and community outreach and involvement. Nominations are being accepted at www.AmericasTopNP.com
