Nurse Practitioners Educate & Increase Awareness During Stroke Month

May is National Stroke Awareness Month, an opportune time for the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) and nurse practitioners (NPs) to increase public awareness of stroke and its potential risk factors. The fourth highest cause of death in the United States, there are approximately 795,000 strokes each year, resulting in more serious long-term disabilities than any other disease.
