President’s Message

Greetings!

Welcome to the National Indian Nurse Practitioners Association of America (NINPAA). First of all, I would like to express my gratitude to the founding president Dr. Aney Paul and each of the outgoing executive members who worked tirelessly as the architects and engineers in establishing NINPAA and nurturing it to an elite organization representing NPs from twelve states.

As the newly elected President, I am humbled and honored to be surrounded by a dynamic group of talented and committed Nurse Practitioners (NPs). Our members are highly educated in specialty areas, research-oriented and many of us adorn leadership positions in world-renowned health care centers. Your passion and commitment to our mission inspire me and give me a positive outlook about our future activities. I welcome the new executive board, committee chairs, and members for a new dawn in NINPAA’s future.

This term we have a great team of experts in ten committees as chairs and co-chairs, two auditors and we added a research committee as well as Chairman position for our organization. I am looking forward to your enhanced participation in professional and health education, leadership, research, and community services. Please continue to be active in networking through our WhatsApp group, Facebook, Website, and Zoom meetings. I believe that with your active participation, we can do better and reach our goal.

During the COVID pandemic, members donated, volunteered, provided education and stepped up to the plate wherever needed hand in hand with the other health care providers and provided high quality health care to the American population. Thank you for your valuable contributions which makes me feel esteemed as the president of NINPAA, a truly unique organization that elicits great respect from the community.

I am excited to see what we can do next, together with the outstanding members of NINPAA, our executive members, and committee chairs to reach new heights and to a new dawn. Let us move forward together keeping in mind what Mother Theresa said, ” I can do things that you cannot, you can do things I cannot; Together we can do great things”.

Sincerely,

Dr. Anu Varghese DNP, FNP
NINPAA President
