The Association of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition Nurses was founded in 1989 by a group committed to improving the educational opportunities for nurses caring for children with gastrointestinal disorders. With the generous support of the members of NASPGHAN (North American Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition) the organization has grown from 25 to over 300 members representing nursing colleagues from the United States and Canada.

APGNN is the author of the Clinical Handbook of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Edited by Rosemary J. Young and Lisa Philichi and published by QMP in 2007.

APGNN and NASPGHAN are committed to improving the lives of children with GI and liver disease. APGNN is represented on NASPGHAN and CDHNF committees and is represented on the NASPGHAN Council by the President of APGNN.

APGNN has participated at the World Congress of Pediatric Gastroenterology held in Boston, 2000, Paris, 2004, Brazil 2008, Taipei 2012 and Montreal 2016, allowing members to connect with international colleagues as well.
