Journal of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association
The Journal of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association (JAPNA), a bi-monthly, peer-reviewed journal, is the official journal of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association (APNA). The main goal of the journal is to publish research and scholarship that contributes both to knowledge development and the continuum of care from mental health promotion to psychiatric treatment and recovery at primary, secondary, and tertiary levels of prevention across the lifespan. JAPNA publishes important developments and issues applicable to psychiatric-mental health nursing practice, education, research, theory, and policy. Articles, editorials, and special features are encouraged that describe critical and timely analysis of emerging issues and trends and discuss innovative models of practice as they are related to changing systems of healthcare.
JAPNA is published by SAGE Publications six times a year: February, April, June, August, October, and December. APNA membership includes a subscription JAPNA. Members may also access JAPNA online (see below for more information). Visit the SAGE website for non-member subscription information.
