Nurse Practitioners (NP) and Physician Assistants (PA) Section

Nurse Practitioners and Physician AssistantsThe Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants Section was established within SIR 
to provide resources for NPs and PAs, who are often team leaders in the clinical decision-making process and of IR teams. Members of this section will be SIR clinical associate members who are advanced practice nurses (i.e. nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists) and physician assistants.

NPs and PAs comprise the majority of SIR’s clinical associate membership and are the primary audience for the current clinical associates dedicated programming at the SIR annual meeting.
