It’s a Small World

It’s a Small World

July 2023

Gathering to to learn and let loose at the APNA Annual Conference is a return home to your community—a brilliant and supportive small world. This time in the company of kindred spirits boosts your morale and sparks ideas for your practice. Sharing experiences in the same space is memorable and palpable, refreshing your outlook and knowledge-base to provide the highest quality care for those you serve.

This year, reimagined events make it easier than ever to locate attendees with similar interests and make lasting connections. These events are stress-free, low maintenance opportunities that put a premium on casual conversations with your fellow nurses.

At Friday’s State Meet Ups, you can get local and chat with folks about needs and opportunities where you live and work. Leaders from your area will be on hand to ensure the dialogue is informative as well as fun. Coffee & Chat with APNA Councils on Saturday allows you to tap into your area of expertise and interest with likeminded colleagues. Stop by, say hello, and learn about what APNA has going on in a variety of arenas: addictions, administration, child & adolescent, education, mental health advocacy, practice, safe environments, recovery, and research & scholarship.

There are plenty of other chances for PMH nurses to mix and meet and enjoy their APNA family. Everyone can find their groove at the APNA 37th Annual Conference: Cheering on APNA Award Winners and Scholarship Recipients at Conference Kickoff; taking a spin on the dance floor at the One Enchanted Evening reception; witnessing inspiring stories from Keynotes. You’ll find ways to express yourself and be invigorated. Expect to have career-building, tool-sharpening, mind-blowing conversations that only happen when 1500+ PMH nurses come together. It’s a small world, after all.

I’m so there!
