The Grand Strand Advanced Practice Nurses Association is a group of local nurse practitioners who organized over 15 years ago for the purposes of networking, education and advancement of our profession. Oh, how we have evolved over the years!! We have a Board of Directors that is elected by the membership. We support our profession by giving to The Coalition. We support our community by being active in local causes. We network - job postings, preceptorships, friends and some fun!!
We have monthly dinner meetings with sponsorship from pharmaceutical companies and other medical vendors. We meet on the 3rd Thursday of the month. Our grand event is our fall conference - Lecture at the Beach. This is a three-day conference complete with CEUs, workshops, networking and, of course, friendship and fun.
