Network Pin

Our NP/APN Network Pin

Background

The NP/APN Network established a Logo Pin program to promote visibility of the Network and to raise funds to assist Advanced Practice Nurses (APN)/Nurse Practitioners (NP) from developing countries in attending our conferences. It is envisioned that this support would encourage involvement in the international nursing community.

The aims and goals of the network can be reviewed by going to www.icn-apnetwork.org website. Advanced Nursing Practice (ANP) is emerging rapidly throughout the world. The membership of the Network has grown to over 2,000 representing over 70 countries.

The Network consists of multiple subgroups which members can apply to join. You can find out the objectives for each subgroup on our website. The Network holds a conference every second year and conducts a Network session during the International Council of Nurses (ICN) Congress/Conference on the alternate years.

Logo Pin Program

The “Logo Pin” program is straightforward. Each pin is $20 USD and the person purchasing the pin must be a member of the NP/APN Network. Network membership currently is free. Go to the website www.icn-apnetwork.org and click on “Membership” to complete the application.

Logo Award Pin Program

The “Logo Award Pin” program cost is $30 USD. You receive one pin and the second pin is assigned for donation to APNs/NPs in developing countries. This inaugural Logo Award Pin program provided 20 donated pins to APN members during our conference in Sandton, South Africa. This was the first time APNs were recognized with a Logo Pin by the Network.

Selecting the Logo Award Pin purchase will recognize our colleagues and further ensure active international participation. The proceeds from the sale of the pins will assist members to attend the Network conference via our ‘grant’ program. Applications for Network conference assistance are placed on our website home page 12 months preceding the Network conferences.
