Chapter Goals

The International Chapter of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association was chartered in October 2002. The Chapter is located in the United Kingdom, but APNA has members in other countries around the world, including, Australia, Canada, China, The Phillipines, Wales, and The Netherlands. It was set up to provide a forum for all those members of APNA who reside outside of the United States.

Mission Statement: To provide a professional forum for psychiatric nurses around the world. To promote research, education, and excellence in clinical practice. 


Any APNA member who resides outside of the United States are invited to become a member of the International 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.
