The board seems to be confusing nurse practitioners, currently known as ARNPs, with APRN, the new umbrella title. See #1, #5 and #8. This is concerning. I think it is going to be up to us ARNPs (soon to be CNPs) to work with our CNS colleagues and provide communication and correct messaging to consumers and other providers.

I agree they did confuse the two terms. So what should our new titles say APRN-CNP?
