The NNA-Kenya Private Nurse Practitioners’ (PNP) Chapter encompasses nursing experts with at least 5 years post registration certificates who have advanced to operate their own facilities countrywide thereby contributing remarkably to increasing access to quality healthcare as enshrined in the new constitution. This chapter addresses the professional welfare of its members and aims at promoting excellence in nursing and midwifery practice in Kenya.
The chapter is at the forefront of promoting CPD activities through their monthly CPD trainings held at the Nurses Complex, Nairobi. There are over 1600 registered nurses who are currently in private practice with an exponential increase annually. Cognizant of the fact that the private sector represents a substantive portion of the healthcare services offered to Kenyans, the chapter also provides a greater platform for escalating research activities on the challenges facing the healthcare system.
Every year during the last week of February, the Private Nurses Chapter holds an Annual Scientific Conference aimed at promoting evidence-based practices thereby promoting positive health outcomes in the society. This year’s theme was “Private Nurse Practitioners’ Impact on Health in the Community”.
