I was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to add the content profile field (ie first name) to the $user object so that it can be printed anywhere such as on page.tpl.php

I would appreciate the support!

Thank you

something like this should work:

global $user; 
$node_profile = content_profile_load(profile, $user->uid);
print $node_profile->field_firstname[0]["value"];

Try this:

 * implementation of hook_init()
 * knows how to add profile node data to $user object
function mymodule_init() {
  global $user;
  $user->profile = content_profile_load('profile', $user->uid);
