“These new members of the Board of Directors and Nominating Committee have a deep understanding of psychiatric-mental health nursing and the foundational role that mental health plays in overall wellness,” says APNA President Kris McLoughlin, DNP, APRN, PMHCNS-BC, FAAN. “Their dedication and wealth of knowledge will help APNA continue to drive mental health to the forefront of care.”

She currently serves as Chair of the APNA Recovery Council.

“We are in a position to bring value and innovation to healthcare delivery systems regardless of how policy may unfold,” says Stern. “I have had experience in large, dynamic healthcare systems with high organizational effectiveness. I will bring that knowledge, hard work and positive energy to support and advance our mission. I am honored to work with APNA members to advocate for psychiatric nursing as we demonstrate our value, and care for our communities’ ‘whole health’.”
