Colorado Nurse Practice Act:"The Nurse Practice Act provides the legal parameters for the practice of professional and practical nursing in the state. The law was initially established in 1905 "in order to safeguard the life, health property, and public welfare of the people of the state from the unauthorized, unqualified, and improper application of services by individuals in the practice of nursing.""
Georgia Nurses Association:"Founded nearly a century ago for the purpose of uniting our profession, GNA is the state's largest professional nursing association for registered nurses in all practice settings. GNA has provided enormous support to advance the profession as a whole and nurses as individuals. Because the health care arena is in a continuing state of flux, nurses must speak with a collective voice. GNA is positioned to advocate for you while you advocate for your patients. Linked together, we can ensure nursing's agenda is heard in every arena"

Virginia Council of Nurse Practitioners (VCNP):"The Virginia Council of Nurse Practitioners (VCNP), the statewide professional organization for all nurse practitioners (NPs) licensed in Virginia, and is a council of of the Virginia Nurses Association (VNA) Commission on Professional Practice. The organization of NPs in Virginia began a quarter century ago in the regional or local areas of the state. With the growth in the number of NPs throughout the state, Virginia NPs initially organized to become a Professional Practice Group of the VNA. In 1984, the VCNP became a council of the VNA, and as such has continued to grow in membership and in the services provided to its members. Membership now is over 1,300.
Although there are other specialty NP groups, the VCNP offers an advantage for all NPs in Virginia because of its association with the VNA and the American Nurses Association (ANA) with their broad based membership and the resources available through these relationships.
