What does BAPM do for nurses and ANNPs?

Current BAPM Projects and opportunities for nurses and midwives

ANNP Career framework

BAPM is currently developing a career framework for ANNPs. This working group is chaired by Jo Hodson and is expecting to publish the framework later in 2020. Earlier this year BAPM undertook a survey of ANNPs to find out more about their career history and goals. The survey results were written up in an article for Infant Journal.
