Seana Rutherford is a certified nurse practitioner with Premier Physicians in Fairview Park, Ohio, where she provides primary care services to a wide variety of patients. Seana Rutherford is also a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) is the nation’s largest professional organization for nurse practitioners. Established in 1985, the AANP joined forces with the American College of Nurse Practitioners in 2013. Both organizations now work to empower nurse practitioners and advance health care under the AANP name.

In addition to providing year-round continuing education, the AANP hosts a national conference each year. The annual conference brings thousands of nurse practitioners together to network, exchange ideas, and learn from leaders in health care. The upcoming conference will feature a keynote speech by Dr. Stephen K. Klasko entitled “What We Forgot to Teach in Nursing and Medical School … and Why It Matters!”

The 2017 AANP National Conference will be held June 20-25 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.
