I'm in Des Moines this week to speak at the INPA Annual conference about "WOMANKIND." Nurses are a group that are particularly interested in the women's stories and I'm finding many who are interested in volunteering abroad.
"The Iowa Association of Nurse Practitioners (IANP) is a professional organization for advanced registered nurse practitioners who advocate for and deliver health care to children and families in a variety of settings. IANP promotes the role of the advanced practice nurse through leadership, legislative activities, and continuing education.
Established in 1975, the IANP is a professional organization to assist the Nurse Practitioner in improving the quality of health care delivered to clients. The organization believes professional growth is essential for maintaining competent practice. To achieve this goal, the IANP provides continuing education programs, works toward collaboration with other organizations and supports legislation as it relates to Nurse Practitioners. The IANP is a chapter of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP). All Nurse Practitioners are welcome." (Taken from the website http://www.iowaanp.org/ )
