About Us

The South Georgia Association of Nurse Practitioners is a local chapter of the United Advanced Practice Registered Nurses of Georgia located in Valdosta, Georgia and an affiliate of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the American College of Nurse Practitioners. A Established in 1998, we advocate for our membership through legislative and educational activities. We provide members the opportunity to network with one another and promote their services to the public. Our Nurse Practitioner Association meets monthly for educational meetings to discuss legislative and practice issues, evidence based medicine and outcomes, and to enhance the knowledge and skills of Nurse Practitioners. 

The mission of the South Georgia Association of Nurse Practitioners is to advance the practice of Nurse Practitioners in Georgia through support of legislative impact and regulatory processes, education, and community outreach. We strive to improve communications among professional groups and provide a means of networking for Nurse Practitioners in Lowndcs, Brooks, Cook, Thomas, Benien, Lanier, Clinch, and Echols counties. 

Our mission and vision is to promote the visibility of the role of the Nurse Practitioner in the community and our professional growth to provide accessible quality healthcare to individuals and their families.
