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

Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants

The Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants Section was established within SIR to provide a forum in which Clinical Associate members who are Advanced Practice Nurses (ie Nurse Practitioners and Clinical Nurse Specialists) or Physician Assistants, can work together to exchange information, education and resources to excel.

Section Objectives:

In addition to the general mission and vision of the Society as set forth in the Bylaws, the objectives of this section shall be:

  1. Unify Advance Practice Providers working in interventional radiology and provide a supportive environment for learning.
  2. Increase steady enrollment and involvement of NPs and PAs in SIR
  3. Distribute most up to date research on best practice measures.
  4. Develop and present educational programs accredited by accepted credentialing bodies​
  5. Provide a forum ​that supports NPs and PAs in IR and encourages exchange of information that will increase expertise in patient and procedural care

Section Membership:

Section members will have access to the NP and PA SIR Connect Community and will work closely with other section members to help develop professional resources and activities. 

Section membership is also open to all SIR members, including physicians and Clinical Nurse Specialists, who support the initiatives of this section.
