The American Psychiatric Nurses Association invites psychiatric mental health nurses and behavioral health professionals to submit abstracts to be considered for presentation at the American Psychiatric Nurses Association 28th Annual Conference. The conference will be held October 22-25, 2014 at the JW Marriott Indianapolis in Indianapolis, Indiana, and will offer more than three days of continuing nursing education and networking. As the premiere event for psychiatric-mental health nursing, the APNA Annual Conference is one of the largest gatherings of psychiatric-mental health nurses in the US and offers a high caliber program addressing the most current and relevant topics in nursing and mental health.
Advanced practice nurses, RNs, and psychiatric mental health professionals are encouraged to submit abstracts to be considered for presentation at the conference as podium sessions (2-hour, 45-minute, or 20-minute formats) or poster presentations. Abstracts which are original, innovative, and contribute to the scholarly practice of psychiatric-mental health nursing are preferred. The APNA Scholarly Review Committee will conduct a peer review of all submissions, rating each based upon clarity, completeness, and quality of work. Abstracts must be submitted online by March 4, 2014 at 11:59 EST. For more information and to submit an abstract, visit http://www.apna.org/CallforAbstracts.

In addition, recordings of many presentations will be published online in the APNA eLearning Center for CNE credit following the conference. This will provide presenters with an enduring presence online and enable them to reach an even wider audience across the globe.
