AAPPN is Washington state’s professional home for advanced practice psychiatric nurses.
With more than 250 clinical and student members—from Bellingham to Richland, from Vancouver to Spokane—AAPPN is the only organization specifically dedicated to the profession in our state.
AAPPN serves members and the professional community through:
- Advocacy: protecting your profession and advocating for mental health care
- Career Cultivation: providing resources and programs to enhance your practice
- Connection: bringing members together share resources, learn new skills, and build friendships
- Education: conducting CE programs designed specifically for psychiatric ARNPs
During the session, the Legislative Committee meets every Thursday evening. Read the latest update on bills AAPPN supports.
All AAPPN members are invited to join the Board for a virtual Member Meeting from 9-10 a.m. on Saturday, February 20.
A grateful welcome to our newly-elected Board of Directors members.
Advocating for your profession and the mental health of all Washingtonians is a top priority for AAPPN … but we can’t do it without you.
Despite the stresses, it is an exciting time to be in practice!
