“I think psychiatric-mental health nurses can be anywhere and everywhere. I’d like future psych nurses to be open, to be in leadership positions, to be in the community, to be advocates – we can be really anything!”  – Marlene, 2019

A long-time member of APNA, Marlene Nadler-Moodie’s contributions to the psychiatric-mental health nursing profession are innumerable. She was a dedicated advocate for persons with mental health needs and psychiatric-mental health nursing. Throughout her career, she was a champion for fighting stigma and reducing the use of seclusion and restraint. She served as President of APNA from 2011-2012 and President of her APNA California Chapter, was named APNA Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse of the Year in 2009, and was a recipient of the APNA Award for Distinguished Service in 2019. She was integral in the creation of the APNA Position on the Use of Seclusion & Restraint, the APNA Seclusion & Restraint Standards of Practice, and education on this topic.
