Join NPO!


The Nurse Practitioners of Oregon invites you into our professional organization within the Oregon Nurses Association!

Nurse practitioners have provided high quality health care services to patients across the nation for more than 40 years. NPs provide primary care, acute care, and specialty care, and are qualified to meet patients’ health care needs.

In Oregon, we promote a comprehensive approach to health care, emphasize the overall health and wellness of our patients, and advocate for change in Oregon’s health care system, all for the benefit of our patients.

We want to know how we can best work for you as a nurse practitioner in Oregon. Our members are our biggest strength. Membership in NPO is a great way to reach out to other nurse practitioners, NP leaders and regional representatives to discuss the issues facing you in your practice and to help lead nursing into the future.

Join us, and and your voice to the growing movement of Oregon’s nurse practitioners!
