Greetings to all NPs of Central Pa Region!            

I hope this finds you all doing well in this “unprecedented “year of 2020.  I know many of us are facing multiple challenges in juggling roles and responsibilities among the Covid-19 pandemic.  Activities that were so no normal for us all in both personal and professional fronts, are on hold or occurring in different formats.  We all have had a crash course on things like Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Tele-Health platforms.   I don’t know about you, but my eyes are bleary from screen time and my smile is getting weary too.  Despite this, we are trying to keep things moving within the regional group.  Just to give an update…

  • The position of President has passed from Eric Doerfler to myself (Suzanne Frazier)
  • We have an open position of President-Elect to fill
  • Renee Orris has stepped down from the position of regional representative to the PCNP Board of Directors-so we have that 2nd position to fill
  • We have been able to get sponsors for dinner meetings starting late-summer but at a much smaller capacity. It is hard to project if this will stop, in the near future, given the new uptick in coronavirus cases.  We can hope that sometime in 2021 we will be back to our old format.
  • We will be posting some options on the regional website for free CME available through the Penn State Project ECHO Educational Series- so keep a look out!


There are 2 things we will need from the membership in the next few weeks.

  • Nominations for the 2 open positions of President-Elect and regional representative to the PCNP Board of Directors. (See the attachment)
  • Your responses to a few questions in a Survey Monkey that will help to guide us in 2021. (coming soon) 

Thank you so much for your time.  Our website is getting a bit of a facelift over the next few months but stay tuned as you may find it a bit better to navigate.  I am excited to start my time as President of this regional group and hope that together we can continue to support our community of nurse practitioners while also supporting our regional community. 

Never hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or ideas and stay well!
