The Association of Missouri Nurse Practitioners wishes all of you a very happy NP week! We all know what we do and how important it is to the health of Missourians; however, sometimes we are not very good at communicating that to others. To assist you when you talk with others about what NPs do, I have uploaded some attachments. Two of them are from the American Association of Nurse Practitioners and describe who we are and what we do. One of the AANP graphics has a health professional shortage area map of Maine. I could not find a HPSA Map of Missouri alone, but I did find two national HPSA maps which show how much of Missouri is covered by health professional shortage areas - one is for primary care and the other is for mental health. These are 2 major areas where NPs can and do make a huge difference in the health care of Missourians.
