Nominate a deserving NP or NP advocate today!

To be considered for the 2019 awards, nominations must be submitted electronically to AANP on the official 2019 State Award Nomination Form no later than October 10, 2018. 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 are 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.


Nominators must be current individual AANP members to nominate a candidate for a state award; however, the nominee does not have to be an AANP member.
