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.
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. At present, there are no chapter dues. 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.
After joining, contact the chapter at APNA-NE@hotmail.com to have your name and address added to our roster/mailing list. Contacting the Chapter this way will avoid any delays in your name being added to our roster, so you will not miss out on any of our program notices or other mailings.
If you are not receiving information via e-mail from the chapter, please contact us at APNA-NE@hotmail.com with your updated contact information. We want to be sure our members receive the information they need to benefit fully from their chapter membership!
