Hi, I am a current PMHNP student rapidly approaching clinical rotation this fall (Aug 23rd). I am asking for any guidance/assistance in seeking out a preceptor (PMHNP, MD, DO). They need two years of experience. I need experience in peds, adults, and/or geriatric population. I can do hours via telehealth due to a certification course I recently took. I am looking in Cleveland area, but will travel as far as Columbus! Please comment on this post or send an email if you have any information : hp550511@ohio.edu

Dr. Andrea Bostrom is APNA's Featured Member for March. See below for her story and impact on psychiatric mental health nursing! When first I looked for a potential doctoral research project, I focused on the stigmatizing appearance of people with mental illness, both with and without medications.  In the 1980s, movement disorders, specifically tardive dyskinesia (TD), were causes of this.  I immersed myself in the literature and was able to work with a team developing and validating a new assessment tool (the Dyskinesia Identification System—Coldwater [DISCo] eventually the Dyskinesia Identification System: Condensed User Scale [DISCUS]) to evaluate TD.  I ...

My facility is looking to revise its inpatient psychiatric group programming. We have access to Team Solutions, but this is primarily geared towards the general psychiatric population. Does anyone have any information you could share regarding your group development or resources/platforms on where to find Dual Diagnosis and Detox information for group development? Thank you!

I am in need of a preceptor for clinicals for my summer session (May 24th - August 8th).  I'm an Adult-Gerontology Primary Care NP and started post Masters PMHNP certification last fall.  I am currently in my first semester of clinicals and am finding it very difficult to find a preceptor (mostly due to COVID restrictions). I  finally had to pay a service to help me. I would like to avoid this for my summer semester if I can.  I live in northern Illinois and would prefer a face to face (as I feel it would be a better learning experience) but am able to do telehealth. If anyone is available and willing during this time I would appreciate the help. Thank you.
