Nominations are now open for the prestigious 2014 AANP State Award for Excellence.  Please read the following information carefully.  To be considered for the 2014 awards, nominations must be submitted electronically to AANP on the official 2014 State Award Nomination Form no later than October 21,  2013.   Thank you in advance for taking the time to nominate deserving NPs and Advocates.


The NP State Award for Excellence is given annually to an individual NP in each state who has demonstrated excellence in NP clinical practice.

The Advocate State Award for Excellence is given annually to an individual in each state who has made a significant contribution toward increasing awareness and recognition of NPs.  Examples of past recipients of this award have been physicians, legislators, educators, etc.  NPs are also eligible for the advocate award for non-clinical practice initiatives related to leadership, precepting, policy, politics, research, education, or community affairs.

If the situation warrants a tie, two awards may be given in one or both categories.  Neither the person nominated nor the nominator has to be an AANP member.

Recipients Receive the Following from AANP:

All recipients receive a one-time waiver of their registration fee for the 2014 National Conference
Current AANP member recipients receive a one-year extension on their membership, beginning at their current renewal date
Non-AANP members who are award recipients are given a one-year complimentary membership
Recipients will be recognized during the 2014 AANP National Conference in June
States should recognize their award recipients throughout the year with individual awards or honors given at the discretion of the state representative
To begin the nomination process, you must log on to the AANP website or if you are already an AANP member then log onto MyAANP.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact Beverly McLemore at (512) 505-0233 or email
