The American Psychiatric Nurses Association (APNA) has announced that they will be awarding 30 nursing students with the 2018 Board of Directors Student Scholarship. The APNA student scholarship program is intended to encourage students to pursue the field of psychiatric-mental health nursing and develop the next generation of leaders in the profession.
Undergraduate and graduate level nursing students across the country are invited to apply for the scholarship each year or be nominated by a member of their nursing school faculty. Scholarship winners are also awarded travel and lodging to attend the APNA Annual Conference as well as a one-year APNA membership to enjoy the professional benefits.
APNA President Linda Beeber, PhD, PMHCNS-BC, FAAN, tells PRWeb.com, “We are very proud to offer these 30 outstanding nursing students the opportunity to become part of our professional community and gain a unique perspective on the benefits of working in the field of psychiatric-mental health care. The Board of Directors Student Scholarship provides nursing students with extensive professional connections and support that helps them move forward in their careers.”
