Chapter Goals

The Nebraska Chapter of the APNA was formed in July 2003. The chapter provides a local forum for Psychiatric Mental Health Nurses to network and develop innovative ways to promote the role, practice, and standards of Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing for the benefit of clients, families, the community and individual nurses. The chapter does this by keeping nurses abreast of the latest developments in psychiatric mental health nursing, as well as providing educational and networking opportunities for members. Additionally the Nebraska chapter is involved in lobbying for patients’ rights and mental health reform. Members are active in clinical practice, education and administration.

Mission Statement

The Nebraska Chapter of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association provides leadership to promote psychiatric-mental health nurses, improve mental health are for culturally diverse individuals, families, groups, and communities, and shape health policy for the delivery of mental health services.


Any APNA member who resides in Nebraska is automatically a member of the Nebraska Chapter. If you are interested in joining or renewing your membership, please see the Membership tab on APNA’s home page for more information about the application process and dues.
