Celebrating Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing

At the APNA 27th Annual Conference there were plenty of opportunities to be inspired, revel in the camaraderie of like-minded professionals, and have a little bit of fun. The San Antonio Riverwalk offered restaurants and shopping, not to mention the Alamo. Sessions and discussions re-energized and reinforced passion in the PMH nursing profession. And at the Friday Night Fiesta attendees donned bandanas, ate tex-mex grub, danced to a band of lawyers, and even did some hula-hooping!
