Engage with thought leaders who share your interests in an aspect of psychiatric-mental health nursing.
A Council is a group of APNA members organized to enhance APNA’s mission and purpose through direct input to the Board of Directors on a psychiatric-mental health nursing area of focus defined by the board. Councils study and review issues pertinent to the council’s area of interest and expertise and make recommendations to the Board for the following:
- Position statements
- New programs, education, resources, or activities
- Committee or task force membership
A Chair and Associate Chair report to the Board of Directors. A Steering Committee provides essential support and an Advisory Panel shares discussion, information, and feedback regarding the council’s area of focus. Council Chairs are appointed by the Board of Directors; Steering Committee members are appointed by the President; and any interested APNA member can join the Advisory Panel.
