National NP Week and Gratitude November
By: Terri Schmitt PhD, APRN, FNP-BC, FAANP
Executive Director, NPACE
November 12th through the 18th, 2023 is National Nurse Practitioner Week. Interestingly, the month of November is also gratitude month. Gratitude for this profession and the people who choose it runs deep for me. The week signifies so much for me, as the profession has grown and changed in my 22+ years as a member.

Breast Cancer Screening Update
Sarah J. Locke, DNP, MBA, FNP-BC, RNC-OB, NE-BC
Each year there are more pink-colored products on the market, and the strategy of awareness is working. Breast cancer mortality rates have decreased by 43% since 1989, in part due to increased awareness, but also due to higher rates of screening mammography and technology and treatment improvements. The 5-year breast cancer survival rate also increased from 75% to 91% since 1975. However, overall rates of breast cancer are increasing by about 0.5% annually since the mid-2000s, including a 2% annual increase in the 40- to 49-year-old age range between 2016 and 2019. Increasing rates may be attributed to earlier detection.
