Metropolitan State Associate Professor Dr. Brian Goodroad has been selected as a 2018 Fellow of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (FAANP). Goodroad joins a group of leaders whose scholarly work and forward-thinking contributions have led to meaningful improvements to healthcare and the nurse practitioner role.

The purpose of the AANP Fellows is to impact national and global health by engaging recognized nurse practitioners, like Goodroad, to lead new initiatives and support the AANP mission. Further, the FAANP program provides a forum to extend and enhance Fellows' efforts to mentor and to facilitate leadership development of NPs. Goodroad joins a group of 696 Fellows nation-wide, with seven in Minnesota.

A reception and banquet will be held Thursday, June 28, in Denver, Colorado.
