Michael Rice, PhD, APRN, BC, FAAN 2010 Award for Excellence in Education Michael Rice, PhD, APRN, BC, FAAN, recipient of this year’s APNA Award for Excellence in Education, describes himself as a “clinician turned academic.” For him, education serves as a means to an end. By giving students from all areas access to superior training and education, he is by extension improving the care of those who suffer from mental illness.

APNA holds two national conferences each year, the CPI Conference in June and the Annual Conference in October. The association also tries to make available as many continuing education opportunities to its members as possible. This area of the site organizes these offerings into one place.
