|The California Coalition of Nurse Practitioners (CCNP) is a statewide organization for Nurse Practitioners dedicated to enhancing the profession through education and improving the health care system through involvement in legislative issues. CCNP was founded in 1977 by a group of nurse practitioners from the University of California at Davis. The organization has grown into a statewide network of 19 regions with more than 1700 members. Most regions have active local chapters with regular meetings and activities.
The purpose of CCNP is to promote a strong nurse practitioner movement through a statewide communication system; to strengthen the public image of the nurse practitioner; to support legislative action that encourages the development of the role of the nurse practitioner and makes the health care system more responsive to the needs of the consumer.
