NANNP's Recruitment and Retention Task Force identified ways to address the current and future shortage of NNPs. The task force, co-led by Tracy Wasserburger and Roxanne Stahl, created two engaging videos that portray the excitement and rewards of a career as a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner and also raise the profile of the NNP role among other healthcare providers. We unveiled the Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Recruitment Video on October 23rd at NANN's Annual Conference Opening General Session and now we're thrilled to share both videos with you:
Help us put these great new tools to use! In order for this effort to have maximum impact in the NNP profession, we need your help! Please take a moment to view these videos and share them within your social networks on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
