About this Episode of SAGEClinician:
Kay talks about the mission and programs of the American Nurse Practitioner Foundation (ANPF) such as research, grants, scholarships and the Toolbox (which sounds really great for practicing clinicians!) available to all nurse practitioners. Not only will these resources benefit the NP, but they will have an impact on your clinical practice and your patients. There are so many ways NPs can get involved from sharing stories, volunteering, writing, humanitarian projects and more.
