State Legislative Activity Reports

State legislatures consider thousands of bills each year – many of which are of potential interest to psychiatric-mental health nurses.  The bills in these monthly reports represent a snapshot of state legislation across the nation – most of which have been acted upon at the committee level, by one or both bodies in the state legislature and/or have been signed into law (or are awaiting signature) by the Governor in that state during calendar year. This list is not intended to be all inclusive but rather representative of key issues being considered at the state level. 

The American Psychiatric Nurses Association is accredited with distinction as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
