NAPNAP Cares

NAPNAP is excited to bring pediatric mental health continuing education to pediatric-focused APRNs through our educational initiative NAPNAP Cares.

NAPNAP Cares was developed in response to the pediatric mental health crisis in the United States.

We assembled a group of very experienced member experts who will discuss the evaluation, diagnostic decision making, and initial- and ongoing- management of a variety of mental health conditions and health promotion and anticipatory guidance.
