Administrative Council Communities Advisory Panel Steering Committee Health IT & Informatics Workgroup APNA members must log in to view members only content. Want to get involved? Join the Council on Member Bridge! How to join List of Council Members Mission Statement It is the mission of the APNA Administrative Council to facilitate collaboration and communication among psychiatric nurse administrators, to serve as a clinical resource in achieving shared goals, and to assist in the use of evidence-based practices and innovative systems for exceptional patient care. Vision Statement The APNA Administrative Council will serve as an association of psychiatric nurse administrators in providing support, clinical resources, and communications in order to build a vibrant coalition of leadership, guidance and partnership.

Councils are comprised of a group of members with similar interests in an aspect of psychiatric mental health nursing not addressed elsewhere within APNA. Councils are approved by and report to the APNA Board of Directors. Council chairs will study and review issues pertinent to the council's area of interest and expertise and make recommendations to the Board for the following: • Position or policy statements • New programs or activities • Committee or task force membership Addictions Council Have a question or want to contact a council chair? Email councilsupport@apna.

An institute provides direct input to the Board of Directors through the Office of the President on an assigned psychiatric-mental health nursing issue that spans virtually all aspects of the profession. It is similar to a task force except that its mission may require several years to complete, while a task force generally completes its work in about a year. The purpose of an institute is to utilize membership expertise in the development of programs and services aimed at addressing the institute's main focus through a series of chaired workgroups.
