Perks and Testimonials for the Clinical Psychopharmacology Institute

The APNA Clinical Psychopharmacology Institute is planned for nurses by nurses so it's about the science...AND how that science can help your patients.

"It's a good conference and permits me to fill most of my pharmacology requirements for licensure and recertification at one time."

"[It] provides excellent and very useful information for the clinician, particularly as we advance in brain neuroscience and use of therapeutic modalities for our patients."

"This is my specialty and I value how other nurses think. I attended the very first one and have tried to come to as many as I can."

Testimonials from Past Attendees

Clinical Psychopharmacology Institute

"I can say without reservation that the learning I’ve experienced has been crucial to my professional development, and thus important to the people I serve. I encourage any psychiatric nurse to take advantage of the opportunity to participate in this tremendously high quality conference."

"It reminds me of the complexity of the lives, brains, and behaviors of my patients, and that they deserve for me to continue learning more..."

"I will maintain my prescriptive authority in my state because I have had these continuing education credits. I have a richer understanding of data I am collecting from my patients to support planning their care and the selection of my interventions."

"My practice is increasingly complex with psych/medical comorbidities and poly pharmacy. I need to continue to stay current with SCIENCE."

"I’ve always been very impressed with the knowledge base of the speakers, who are often experts in their field. The content the speakers present is high-quality, cutting-edge and of use to any psychiatric-mental health nurse."

"I enjoyed the wide variety of topics and the fact that there were many that reviewed the cutting edge science now starting to be put in place."

"The speakers were informative and related their research and knowledge well. The topics chosen were interesting and expanded my knowledge in the treatment of mental illness."

"It was one of the best conferences I have been to... The most valuable parts were those that helped me better understand what having a mental illness means to my patient."

"A gathering of so many nurses, from so many different practice areas and from all over the country! It is invigorating and I love it!"

"I always love the collaboration with other APRNs as well as the content that is presented. I got everything I hoped for."
