American Psychiatric Nurses Association Identifies Urgent Need for Competency-Based Suicide Prevention Training for Psychiatric Mental Health RNs
Date:8/27/2013

. APNA also recognizes that collaborating with other groups invested in suicide prevention is essential to the successful development of these guidelines.

“As the largest organization committed to psychiatric mental health nursing in the US, the American Psychiatric Nurses Association recognizes that inpatient psychiatric mental health RNs, due to the scope of their practice, are able to create meaningful connections with hospitalized patients and address the urgent public health issue of suicide at the individual level,” says APNA President Beth Phoenix, PhD, RN, CNS. “We are committed to providing these nurses with tools and knowledge to help them do so.”

At this time, APNA has convened a task force to address the position paper’s recommendations. In addition, the association would particularly like to thank the following members of the APNA Education Council, who wrote the position paper: Cheryl Puntil, CNS, MN, APRN, PMHCNS, BC; Janet York, PhD, PMHCNC-BC, FAAN; Barbara Limandri, PhD, APRN, BC; Pamela Greene, PhD, RN; and consumer advocate Eric Arauz.

The American Psychiatric Nurses Association is a national professional membership organization committed to the specialty practice of psychiatric-mental health nursing and wellness promotion, prevention of mental health problems and the care and treatment of persons with psychiatric disorders. APNA’s membership is inclusive of all psychiatric mental health registered nurses including associate degree, baccalaureate, advanced practice (comprised of clinical nurse specialists and psychiatric nurse practitioners), and nurse scientists and academicians (PhD). APNA serves as a resource for psychiatric mental health nurses to engage in networking, education, and the dissemination of research.
