NPAM membership is important
- NPAM is incorporated and operated by active practicing NPs
- NPAM directly collaborates with NPs/NP students, nurse employers, the Manitoba Nurses Union, legislators, nurse regulators, the public, and post-secondary education institutes to address strategic health advice or priority policy
- NPAM membership supports the advancement of NPs in Manitoba.
- NP numbers count! A membership provides evidence for a strong message that NPs support NPs for stakeholders who always inquire as to how many members NPAM has
- NPAM cannot effectively negotiate on behalf of NPs if we do not represent all NPs in Manitoba.
Don’t let other associations speak on behalf of NPs!
NPAM is the only association in Manitoba that addresses NP issues to support and advance the professional interests of NPs. NPs make up only 1.7% of nurses that are registered in Manitoba. When choosing an association, choose one that represents YOU.

NPAC is the national voice for Nurse Practitioners, with the goal of advocating for, and reducing barriers to NP practice.
