Patricia A. Quigley – BS 75’, MS 82’
The Fellows of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (FAANP) program was established by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) to recognize nurse practitioner leaders who have made outstanding contributions to health care through clinical practice, research, education, or policy and to provide a forum through which to extend and enhance such efforts. A limited number of Fellows are selected each year. FAANP candidates must demonstrate outstanding contributions and leadership, continuing commitment and leadership and potential for contributing to the mission of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.
