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.
