PR for NP Week (November 10-16, 2019):

The Michigan Council of Nurse Practitioners (MICNP) helped spread the word about National Nurse Practitioner Week being celebrated November 10-16, 2019 by sending out a public service announcement, press release and by running advertisement promotions and commercials.  Please see below for some examples of our various PR efforts this week (also check out #NPWeek on Twitter to see responses to AANP's call for groups to post NP Week 2019 promotions). 

We proudly salute you, our MICNP members and nurse practitioners during NP Week 2019!  We are honored to serve you and your profession.
