  4. 4. “I am re-inspired to be a nursing leader, to speak up for psychiatric nursing, to utilize evidence-based practice.” “With the information that I have learned; I truly believe that "yes" our patients can recover. And with this belief I can instill more hope to our patients and their families that having a diagnosis does not mean you are done, it just means that yes you have a disease but you are still you as an individual and you can still recover.” “I am challenged to not continue with the status quo but to take fresh eyes to my practice & see how I can improve it with the tools I've been given.” APNA 27th ANNUAL CONFERENCE October 9 -12, 2013 ● Henry B.

  7. 7. “The information from the conference in general has made me more thoughtful about how I present my profession to the general public, how I articulate what I what I want to say, my need to assess my strengths and weaknesses and how to optimize myself.” “[I will] increase my awareness in my community and realize I have a voice that is very much needed in the conversations for improving the lives of all in our community not just clients with mental illness.” “I have been introduced to leaders in the field all across the country which will greatly influence me as a provider and student. I have new ideas and questions about the field that I think will help further personal and professional growth.” APNA 27th ANNUAL CONFERENCE October 9 -12, 2013 ● Henry B.
