With all of the efforts to reach out to our nursing colleagues in other specialty organizations, a need was identified to name individuals who met specific eligibility criteria to serve as HPNA Content Experts. These individuals will be called upon to serve as consultants for HPNA and for other organizations to assist in developing position papers, review products, etc.

After reviewing several excellent curriculum vitas, the HPNA Board of Directors narrowed the list to 16 highly qualified individuals and they are identified below with a primary topic of expertise.
