UNMC nurse faculty member receives American Association of Nurse Practitioners Award
UNMC College of Nursing Lincoln Division instructor and family nurse practitioner Roberta Kroeger recently was awarded the 2019 American Association of Nurse Practitioners Nebraska State Award for Nurse Practitioner Advocate Excellence.
The award is given annually to a nurse practitioner advocate in each state who has made a significant contribution toward increasing awareness and recognition of the nurse practitioner role.
Recipients were honored at an awards ceremony and reception held during the AANP national conference in Indianapolis.
"It is a great honor to be nominated and recognized by my colleagues," Kroeger said. "I am humbled. It has always been my personal philosophy to treat my patients with respect, compassion and to encourage them to be involved in their care to maintain or improve their health status.
"As a nurse practitioner educator, I have strived to be a good role model and mentor -- using evidence-based practice as the standard of care. I am very fortunate to have wonderful patients in my family practice and terrific, hard-working students."
The American Association of Nurse Practitioners, the largest national professional membership organization for nurse practitioners of all specialties, represents the interests of more than 270,000 licensed NPs in the U.S.
