AAPPN provided a warm welcome to me both as a graduate student and as a new PMHNP. The conferences and local chapter meetings are wonderful opportunities to stay connected both personally and professionally with colleagues from around the state.

Much of what psychiatric NPs in Washington enjoy in our scope of professional practice is due to this organization. In addition, AAPPN has provided me with immeasurable support as an NP student and has continued that support through my transition to provider. I count this organization among the most important contributions to my professional practice.
