NAON Endorses the APRN Compact

NAON supports the APRN Compact in the legislative efforts to bring the benefits of the APRN Compact to APRNs across the country. The APRN Compact allows for APRNs with 2,080 hours* or more of practice to have one multistate license in their home state, with the privilege to practice in other APRN Compact party states without obtaining additional licenses. To join the APRN Compact, states need to enact the APRN Compact model legislation and implement a federal criminal background check for APRN licensure. The APRN Compact will become operational once seven states enact legislation.

Movement is Life Summit 

Movement is Life (MIL) became a 501c3 in 2022. Since then, we have been busy implementing our initiatives to move the needle on racial, ethnic and gender disparities by promoting movement to improve health outcomes. We also developed a new website and are planning our annual meeting, which is now called the Movement is Life Summit. Our meeting dates for 2023 are November 30th-December 1st at the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel. Click here to register for the Summit.

Why attend the Summit this year?

As an attendee, you will learn, connect and support the MIL Summit with others who are committed to achieving health equity in vulnerable populations. Some our dynamic speakers include Dr. Arline T. Geronimus, who will discuss weathering and its impact on health and the aging process. The founder of Parity, Ms. Bree Jones, will educate participants on the principle of development without displacement and how Parity achieves community and wealth building via its affordable homeownership opportunities.  Other notable speakers include Dr. Diana E. Ramos, California’s Surgeon General and Dr. Pedro Greer, Jr., who spearheaded the nationally recognized Green Family Foundation Neighborhood Health Education Learning Program (NeighborhoodHELP). 

As customary, we will have workshops where you will be engaged and be inspired. One interesting workshop this year is focused on artificial intelligence (AI).  MIL’s AI workshop will include an overview of AI, a discussion of how AI impacts health equity, and a discussion of how AI can be used at the community or population level. Participants will also learn how AI is used in healthcare; how AI products are designed, tested, and implemented; weaknesses in data inputs; policymakers’ views of issues with AI and how to fix these issues.
