The Florida Association of Public Health Nurses (FAPHN) evolved from the 60th annual PUBLIC HEALTH NURSING LEADERSHIP, C.A.S.E.1, INC. conference that was held on July 22-23, 2002. The reorganization of C.A.S.E., Inc. was approved at this time. FAPHN was incorporated December 12, 2002 as a Florida corporation. September 15, 2006, FAPHN was approved by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a public charity [501(c) (3)]. FAPHN is qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts under Section 2055, 2106, or 2522 of the I.R.S. Code. FAPHN is a State of Florida Tax Exempt corporation until November 2017.
