Conroy Wins Prestigious Nurse Practitioner Award

 
SEYMOURNurse practitioners and nurse practitioner advocates, recipients of the prestigious American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) 2017 State Award for Excellence, will be honored at an awards ceremony and reception held during the AANP 2017
National Conference June 20-25, 2017, in Philadelphia, PA.
 
Theresa Conroy, APRN, FNP-BC of  Seymour, CT will be among the recipients honored.
 
The State Award for Nurse Practitioner Excellence, founded in 1991, recognizes a nurse
practitioner (NP) in a state who demonstrates excellence in practice. In 1993, the State Award for Nurse Practitioner Advocate was added to recognize the efforts of individuals who have made
a significant contribution toward increasing awareness and recognition of NPs.
 
Ms. Conroy has had a successful and distinguished career in nursing. She retired from VA CT Healthcare System in West Haven and continues to work
as an APRN for MinuteClinic. As a former state representative, she was instrumental in crafting legislation for independent practice for APRN’s in Connecticut. She has been on the forefront addressing the opioid and heroin epidemic and serves on various councils to improve the health outcomes for the residents of her state. 
 
The American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) is the largest professional
membership organization for nurse practitioners (NPs) of all specialties. It represents the interests
of more than 222,000 NPs, including approximately 72,000 individual members and 200
organizations, providing a unified networking platform and advocating for their role as providers
of high-quality, cost-effective, comprehensive, patient-centered and personalized health care.
 
The organization provides legislative leadership at the local, state and national levels, advancing health policy; promoting excellence in practice, education and research; and establishing standards that  best serve NP patients and other health care consumers.
