Texas Nurse Practitioners 

Since 1989 when the official charter for Texas Nurse Practitioners (TNP) was signed, TNP has focused on meeting the needs of nurse practitioners across our state. The purposes of TNP are to advance, support and promote the role of nurse practitioners and to promote accessible, quality health care provided by nurse practitioners. This includes not only continuing educational opportunities, but also providing to our members current information that impacts their clinical practice. TNP promotes legislative changes that enhance NP practices within Texas, which positively affects patient welfare. As a member of TNP you will be making a valuable investment in not only your career, but the health future of all Texans.
