Identify ambulatory care practice as a specialty that is essential to the continuum of accessible, high quality, and cost-effective health care.
Are committed to their professional development and the quality of patient care in an ambulatory care environment and seek to actively engage in a community of like-minded professionals.
Foster understanding and appreciation for the vital role of professional registered nurses as leaders, coordinators of patient care, and care providers in an ambulatory care setting.
