NKF Physician Assistant Membership

NKF Physician Assistant Membership


At the National Kidney Foundation, we honor Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) as an integral part of the kidney care team. That’s why we’re committed to providing support for nephrology Physician Assistants to enhance patient care and achieve optimal outcomes. 

As representatives and advocates for NKF’s APP membership body, the Council of Advanced Practice Providers (CAPP) coordinates with other professional health organizations to promote effectiveness and develop valuable resources such as evidence-based practice guidelines and education for nephrology APPs. CAPP helps protect the interests of APPs, the well-being of patients, and works to affect changes in kidney healthcare legislation and public policies.

When you become an NKF Professional Member, you unlock a world of professional opportunities including accredited education, the latest in kidney research, and an unparalleled network of resources. Access tools for your practice and for your patients, all in one place. A portion of your dues are directed to NKF's research endowment fund and supports our lifesaving patient programs and services. Make NKF your professional home today!
