Journal of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association
The Journal of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association (JAPNA) provides quality, up-to-date information to promote psychiatric nursing, improve mental health care for culturally diverse individuals, families, groups, and communities, as well as shape health care policy for the delivery of mental health services. JAPNA, a peer-reviewed journal, not only publishes original research and practice-focused articles, but also features editorials, interviews, briefings, and letters to the editors. The journal's expert content provides psychiatric nurses with the newest effective nursing practices, innovative therapeutic approaches, significant information trends, and useful, clinically-focused research in psychiatric-mental health nursing and its related subspecialties.
JAPNA is published by SAGE Publications six times a year: February, April, June, August, October, and December. APNA membership includes a subscription JAPNA. Members may also access JAPNA online (see below for more information). Visit the SAGE website for non-member subscription information.
