“AAPPN has been great experience for connecting with experienced nurse practitioners in our field and learning about different subspecialties and career options.”
Patricia Morgan is passionate about her work as a PMHNP. “I love psychiatry and the various pathways to help a person explore options to help themselves.”

Steven Pline enjoys being engaged with a community to work toward a common goal.
Heather Buzbee’s desire to contribute is reflected in her professional work as a pediatric nurse and in her contributions to the profession as a volunteer and educator.
