PCNP is the state organization that promotes and protects the practice of over 15,000 Certified Registered Nurse Practitioners (CRNPs) in Pennsylvania. Formed in the 1980's by only 3 forward thinking NPs, PCNP now has 17 regional groups across the Commonwealth! Each regional group offers networking opportunities and has a representative on the PCNP Executive Board that meets quarterly to discuss issues and set organizational goals. Member dues are used to support our central office, executive staff and maintain a Government Relations Specialist who represents us in Harrisburg.
