The 24th Annual Conference for Texas Nurse Practitioners in September is fast approaching. The Texas Nurse Practitioners Foundation (TNPF) holds a Silent Auction in conjunction with the annual Texas Nurse Practitioners (TNP) Conference in an effort to raise money for Nurse Practitioner Scholarships. Donated items are on view in the Conference Exhibit Hall during scheduled hours.The Foundation is looking for auction items over $50.00 each. Usually each affiliate chapter does a basket or a group donation to benefit the auction at conference which supports NP student scholarships. We are asking anyone from our chapter that has a special talent or wants to get a group together to put a basket together for the NTNP Metro West, please contact Elizabeth or Phyllis, our special events coordinators. 

 For those of you who have been to conference before, you may know that the Texas Nurse Practitioner Foundation, (TNPF), also sponsors a WALKATHON on Saturday morning to raise money for NP scholarships.  If you are new to conference, this is a great way to get involved in TNP and make a difference in the future of nurse practitioner practice.

The TNPF would like to throw down the gauntlet and issue a new challenge to the membership of Texas Nurse Practitioners.  TNPF challenges each local affiliate to gather a team from its membership to participate in the Walkathon in Austin.  Sign up to walk, and then gather cash from friends, relatives, and colleagues as sponsors for your efforts.  

Registration for each walker is $15.00.  Name your Team, set a goal and start collecting donations in your Team’s name. Track all donations on the attached sponsor sign-up sheet.  Carry your sponsor sheet to work or to outings and take advantage of opportunities to receive donations.  You can even start a little team rivalry and challenge each of the team members to raise the most for the team.

Donations may be taken in the form of cash, check (Payable to the Texas Nurse Practitioners Foundation Scholarship Fund), or by credit card through PayPal.

NOT A WALKER?  You can still help raise money for NP scholarships. When you register for the conference, check the box on the registration form to “Donate Not To Walk.”  OR…you can have your own fund raising efforts to SLEEP IN FOR SCHOLARSHIPS.  See if you can raise the most money for scholarships by getting your Beauty Sleep.  Use the sponsor sign-up sheet to get sponsors to pay you to sleep!If you are a hardworking NP, friends and colleagues may want to take advantage of the opportunity to give you a little shut eye. Prizes will go to the individual who raises the most money walking, sleeping-in, and the Team who raises the most money. .
