National Nurse Practitioner Week is in November, and one of the ways Frontier Nursing University is celebrating is by hosting an exciting virtual event dedicated to nursing.
From November 13-19, the "Stories that Inspire: A Call to Action for Nurse Practitioners" virtual event will explore the experiences and stories of Nurse Practitioners who are passionate leaders committed to better care for women and families.
All sessions are free and easy to join. We hope you’ll join us!
