Flinter Named Fellow of American Academy of Nurse Practitioners

From the Community Health Center

Margaret Flinter was inducted as a Fellow of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (FAANP) on June 20 during the AANP national conference at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tenn.

Flinter serves as the Vice President and Clinical Director of the Community Health Center, Inc., and is the Director of its Weitzman Center for Innovation in Community Health and Primary Care.

The FAANP program was established in 2000 to recognize nurse practitioner leaders who have made outstanding contributions to health care through nurse practitioner clinical practice, research, education, or policy. Priority initiatives of FAANP are the development of leadership and mentorship programs for nurse practitioners and nurse practitioner students.

Fellows of the AANP are visionaries committed to the global advancement of nursing through the development of imaginative and creative future nurse practitioner leaders, and as such, hold an annual think tank to strategize about the future of nurse practitioners and health care outside the confines of traditional thinking. A limited number of nurse practitioners are selected for this highly coveted distinction each year.

Flinter will continue the tradition of contributing to the mission of the AANP and
promoting the role of the nurse practitioner.

AANP was founded in 1985 and is the oldest, largest, and only full-service national professional organization for nurse practitioners of all specialties. AANP represents the interests of the approximate 125,000 nurse practitioners around the country. AANP continually advocates for the active role of nurse practitioners as providers of high-quality, cost-effective and personalized healthcare.
