Advanced Practitioners for the River Region

Advance Practitioner River Region 2013 in Review

Posted about 5 years ago

The Alabama CRNPs and CNMs have had a year of changes, especially in practice. Congratulations to the river region members for their active role in helping to make these changes. More than ever there are increasing challenges for us as healthcare providers and  one of the first lines of defense against illness. Where there are challenges, there are opportunities. Advance Nurse Practitioners, CNMs, and Physician Assistants are capable and ready to meet current and future health needs of the community we serve.

As this year ends and another begins, may we reflect on the accomplishments of the past and the endless possibilities for the future.

A special thanks to this  years’ River Region Executive Committee and members who worked tirelessly to make this year a success.  We welcome new ideas and look forward to our 2014 Pharmacy Conference.

Have a wonderful holiday season and I look forward to seeing and hearing from you next year.
