About Us:

HAPNN's governing body is a five member board of directors, elected by the memebership.  This consists of a president, president-elect, secretary, treasurer, and historian.   These positions are elected at the last meeting of the calender year which is held the 3rd Thursday in November.

On-line services can be linked from the website for professional organizations, patient links, and educational opportunities.

HAPNN holds an annual conference the Saturday after Labor Day every year.  This has had national speakers present, which has provided and opportunity for cutting edge topics, and local continuing education for local healthcare providers.

HAPNN is a growing group of advanced practice healthcare providers that are eager to provide more services to the community, and the profession as a whole, to optimize advanced practice and delivery of quality healthcare to the public.
