The APNA Annual Conference is the premiere event for psychiatric nursing! It is held in a new location each year to encourage new regional participation and to add travel adventure to those who regularly attend. The 2013 Annual Conference will be held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas, October 9-12. The program for this year's conference will feature more than three days of continuing education specific to psychiatric nursing for RN-PMH and advanced practice nurses alike. Attendees will have the opportunity to earn up to 25.5 contact hours onsite. Surrounding the educational sessions will be social and networking events to meet with your peers and learn from each other. APNA also takes this opportunity each year to recognize outstanding contributions to the association and psych nursing through the presentation of the APNA Annual Awards. Join us to share knowledge, celebrate psychiatric nurses as leaders, and advance mental health!
