Each year the APNA Annual Awards recognize APNA members who demonstrate excellence in psychiatric-mental health nursing practice, education, research, leadership, community efforts, and more. This year’s recipients will be recognized in person at the APNA 30th Annual Conference taking place October 19-22, 2016 at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, CT.
The Massachusetts Association of Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nurses (MAAPPN) would like to congratulate two of our members who the APNA has recognized.

The Award for Innovation – Individual is an award that recognizes an APNA member who has developed and/or demonstrated a new, fresh approach to care through innovation in psychiatric-mental health nursing practice.
“Elaine has held true to the ideals of community health as she joins forces with programs established to aid people at critical stages in their lives and within community based organizations.”
Congratulations also go to Janice H. Goodman, PhD, PMHCNS-BC of Boston, MA winner of the Award for Excellence in Research.
