Dr. Cindy Parsons, DNP, ARNP-BC,FAANP; FNPN Membership; TBAPN Treasurer; APNA Fl Chapter MAL/ Conference Chair

I have been a member of TBAPNC for over 20 years. I am an active member of this group as well as our state and national nursing and nurse practitioner organizations. In my current position as treasurer, I have been a faithful steward of our financial resources. I have worked with the governing board to develop annual budgets that can fulfill the mission of TBAPNC, maintained accurate accounting of our income and expenses and assured on time reporting for state and national taxing and monitoring agencies. I have attended our regular monthly meetings, monthly board meetings and have represented our group at AANP if our leadership was unable to attend. Over the last four years we have grown our organization and have been able to increase the scope and reach of TBAPNC through addition of a north meeting. It is my intent if elected to continue to effectively contribute to the growth of TBAPNC and the advancement of APNs in our community and state.
