About the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners

The National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) is the nation’s only professional association for pediatric-focused advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) dedicated to improving the quality of health care for infants, children, adolescents and young adults. Representing more than 8,000 health care practitioners with 18 special interest groups and 53 chapters, NAPNAP has been advocating for children’s health since 1973 and was the first APRN society in the U.S. Our mission is to empower pediatric-focused advanced practice registered nurses and key partners to optimize child and family health.

We are excited by the opportunity to get a better understanding of providers’ knowledge and needs related to pediatric Lyme disease and develop tools to positively impact their practices and patient families."

About NAPNAP Knows Lyme

The NAPNAP Knows Lyme educational microsite is part of the Nurse Practitioner Education and Knowledge Assessment for Lyme Disease initiative, made possible by a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As part of the initiative, this site is designed to help you keep up to date on the latest guidelines on Lyme disease and empower your patient families to prevent and manage pediatric Lyme disease.

Children, especially those aged 5-9, are one of the most at-risk populations for Lyme disease and NAPNAP hopes the resources we develop will help minimize the cases and improve outcomes in the future."
