APNA New York Chapter President
On behalf of the New York State Chapter of the APNA, I would like to welcome you to our official Chapter homepage. Our chapter was revitalized in the winter of 2008, and since then has flourished under the direction of a highly motivated Board. We encourage our members to use Member Bridge to connect with the New York State community! If you are not familiar with our members-only networking site, click here for an introductory presentation.
We look forward to your ongoing support and involvement as we move finto the future of NYS APNA with excitement and energy. Your support is vital to the success of our practice as Psychiatric Nurses today, and tomorrow!!
Our goal is to have regional meetings in the future to help support and activate leaders in local settings to become involved with the greater national goal of APNA, as well as those local goals developed by our constituents. If you are interested in becoming a regional leader or are willing to support local activity, please email any of the Board of Directors for further information.
Any APNA member who resides in New York is automatically a member of the New York 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.
