Upon the inception of the very first Nurse Practitioner Program in 1965, it wasn’t long before NPs started becoming an essential and valuable part of the U.S. healthcare system. With a surge of NPs entering the workforce (nearly 15,000 by 1979) and more than 200 NP programs and tracks offered to students before 1980, nurse practitioner organizations started forming to help NPs earn credentials and adhere to federal regulations.
