Recertification for Adult, Family, Gerontological, and Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioners


Nurse practitioners certified by AANPCP must re-certify every 5 years

Certificants have 2 options from which to choose in order to maintain their certification.


It is the responsibility of the Certificant to make sure they apply for recertification at least eight weeks prior to the expiration date of their current certification to avoid a lapse in certification. Courtesy renewal notification postcards are mailed to the Certificant’s last known postal address 1-year, and again at 6-months, prior to the date of expiration of the current certification. Email reminders are also sent to those Certificants for whom AANPCP has a valid email address. Please check your online profile to verify current email and postal information.
