Dr. Grace Mani’s Message

Greetings to all!

Welcome to the National Indian Nurse Practitioners Association of America (NINPAA). I express my sincere gratitude to our founding president and current Chairman Hon. Dr. Aney Paul, the previous Executive Board, the Governing Body, and the Directors at Large for their dedication and hard work towards the expansion and growth of NINPAA. Thanks to their commitment, NINPAA is in 16 states now.

Our association is founded on a strong mission, which focuses on professional excellence and advancement in quality health care to all through leadership, education, advocacy, charity, and community services.

We are seeing an increasing demand for Nurse Practitioners (NPs). Our NPs work in all settings and specialties, including working as Hospitalists, teaching at universities, and owning their own practices. We have ten committees and dedicated committee members as chairs and co-chairs.

I am honored and humbled to serve as the third president of our great association along with our dedicated Executive Board and the Governing Body. I am delighted to work with our highly educated and committed members, who are the core of our association. Our goal is to expand our membership to even more states and to increase our presence and services in our communities. Please continue to connect through our social media and our monthly Zoom meetings, so we can learn, grow, and serve together.

Dr. Grace Mani, DNP, MSN, FNP-Bc
NINPAA President
