The Newfoundland & Labrador Nurse Practitioner Association (NLNPA) represents the professional interests of Nurse Practitioners (NPs) in NL.
The goal of NLNPA to advocate for accessible, high quality health care for all citizens throughout the Newfoundland & Labrador (NL).
Membership in the NLNPA provides Nurse Practitioners with educational opportunities, networking, advocacy services and professional support.
Last week, the Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Association released a proposal which stemmed from its provincial forum held in the fall of 2016. Among over 130 healthcare stakeholders from across the province, the NLNPA was represented at the forum by past president, Raleen Murphy. The document and related news release is available on the NLMA website linked below. We at the NLNPA certainly support the need for sustainable healthcare reform and recognize how NPs have the potential to play a very significant role.
The NLNPA would like to acknowledge the exemplary work done by our friends in BC. Click on the link below for the BCNPA’s recent release:
