1. Access the website of a national APRN organization. What information about health policy appears on the site? What information about becoming involved in health policy formation is provided?
2. Access information on APRN certification for your specialty from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) or the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). What are the differences in certification requirements between the two accrediting bodies? Which certification exam would you take and why?
**everyone should not do the same site. Try as much as possible to explore different APRN organizations.
A few examples are listed below:
AANP- American Association of Nurse Practitioners
ANCC- American Nurses Credentialing Center
ANA- American Nurses Association
GAPNA- Gerontological Advanced Practice Nurses Association
FYI: Choose AANP
