CONYERS — To commemorate National Nurse Practitioner Week, which was Nov. 10 through 16, the Atlanta Chapter of the United Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (UAPRN) has donated close to $500 worth of needed paper products and bleach to Project ReNeWal, the battered women’s shelter that serves Rockdale, Newton and Walton counties. This donation is but one act of community service that nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, nurse midwives and nurse anesthetists provide. Last winter, the group conducted a successful blanket drive for another shelter and many members participate in health fairs around the Atlanta metropolitan area.
The purpose of the United Advanced Practice Registered Nurses of Georgia is to address legislative, political and practice issues of advance practice registered nurses. APRNs work in mental health, sleep medicine, pediatrics, neurology, primary care and geriatrics. APRNs are master’s level health care providers who work under the supervision of a physician and have treatment protocols that are approved by the Georgia Composite Medical Board.
