Neurologic Advanced Practice Providers

The American Academy of Neurology recognizes that each member of the neurology care team is essential to high-quality patient care. We are committed to providing the best educational and professional resources for neurologic nurse practitioners and physician assistants (advanced practice providers, or APPs).
