Dime-a-Day Fundraising Campaign:
Ensuring the Future While Preserving our Past
The APNF is continuing its fundraising campaign! If every member contributes a dime a day - an annual contribution of $36.50 - we can make a significant impact on future initiatives benefiting our profession and on efforts to preserve the history of psychiatric mental health nursing.

At the APNA 27th Annual Conference, we debuted the second film in our Living the History video series: Living the History of Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing through the Eyes of Shirley Smoyak. This video features a conversation with our very own nursing icon Shirley Smoyak in which she shares her experiences as a "nurse before Thorazine" and her perspectives on how psychiatric mental health nursing has evolved over the past 50 or so years. To thank you for your contribution of $36.50 or more, you will receive a DVD of this video and a donor pin in the mail. As a bonus, if you choose to donate at the gold or platinum level, you will also recieve a copy of A Conversation with Grayce Sills, the APNF film shown at the 26th Annual Conference, in addition to this one. No matter which level you choose, you will get a thousand thanks from us and, as always, a tax deduction!
