31 Promising Nursing Students Awarded 2021 APNA Student Scholarships

The American Psychiatric Nurses Association (APNA) is pleased to announce the 31 nursing students selected to receive this year’s APNA Board of Directors and APNA Industry Sponsored Student Scholarships. The APNA student scholarship program introduces promising nursing students to experienced nurses in the field of psychiatric-mental health, provides a preview of the variety of career options within the profession, and introduces them to cutting-edge resources and education.

Each year, undergraduate and graduate-level nursing students across the nation apply for the scholarship and members of the APNA Awards & Recognition Committee review their submissions. Scholarship recipients are provided registration to attend the APNA 35th Annual Conference in Louisville October 13-16, 2021, as well as a one-year complimentary APNA membership.

“These students represent the future of psychiatric-mental health nursing, and we look forward to welcoming them to our community,” says APNA President Matthew Tierney, MS, CNS, ANP, PMHNP, FAAN. “Both scholarships help to prepare these promising students for a fulfilling career serving individuals with mental health needs, helping to close the nationwide gap for these services nationwide.”

Funded by the APNA Board of Directors, the 2021 APNA Board of Directors Student Scholarship is being awarded to 30 undergraduate and graduate nursing students. An additional student is receiving a scholarship to the APNA 35th Annual Conference as well, through the top tier level of the APNA Industry Partner Program, which includes funding for an Industry Scholar.
