Call for Interest: New Nurse Practitioner Task Force

Make an Impact: Work with Aquifer to Advance Medical Education

Aquifer—a unique non-profit organization dedicated to advancing healthcare education—will be inviting Nurse Practitioners to join the new Nurse Practioner Task Force. This group will bring the voice, interests, and experiences of nurse practitioner educators to Aquifer, and work to develop educator tools and training materials to support physician assistant programs using Aquifer to achieve better student outcomes by integrating Aquifer into their curriculum.

This is an exciting opportunity to participate in a scholarly project on a national level and advance healthcare education through collaboration. With over 15 million virtual patient cases completed since our founding in 2006, Aquifer is the leader in developing clinical teaching and learning tools for medical and health professions education. Aquifer needs your help ensuring that our learning tools meet the needs of nurse practitioner educators.
