Upcoming Chapter Conferences

Start Planning for 2019!

Attending an educational conference is an investment in terms of your time, your funds, and your professional growth. And when you attend any of APNA’s national conferences in the upcoming year, your investment will pay off tenfold.

The priority is YOU when it comes to APNA conferences. That’s why each APNA national conference puts your needs as a psychiatric-mental health nurse first. Registration costs are kept as low as possible, locations are chosen based on attendees’ comfort and ease of travel, and programs are developed with evidence-based content hand selected by your psychiatric-mental health nursing peers. Each conference delivers in-depth assessments of current and emerging approaches, a focus on your patients and the nurse-patient relationship, continuing education contact hours, and energizing connections with like-minded professionals.
