CANAP is pleased to offer our members and the community the opportunity to have their events posted on our website.  However, CANAP will only post events that are in alignment with our mission and of benefit to advanced practice nursing.  For example, we will not be posting events for blood drives, fundraisers, non-APRN focused events, etc.
