TNP Legislator of the Year Award is given biannually to members of the Texas Legislature who have greatly contributed in the advancement of our policy and legislative goals through introducing or supporting legislation or amendments that positively impact APRN regulations and statutes. The award is given only when a deserving legislator is identified and can be given to more than one recipient in any given year. The Government Actions committee selects the individual for the award and provides this information to the chair of the nomination and awards committee. This award does not have to be presented every year, but when it is – it will be presented at the Annual Conference.
