I have been a registered nurse for approximately nine years.  The majority of my experience, as well as my area of interest, has been in psychiatric nursing.  In the past two years I have also worked with those afflicted with substance use disorders and obtained my CARN.  After relocating to Florida, I was disheartened at the realization of the lack of mental  health services available to minority/low income populations.  This has led to my pursuit of an advanced degree so that I would be in a more discernible position to provide quality mental health care at the community level.  I will begin the pursuit of my PMHNP at Vanderbilt University in August 2021.  ...

Good day! I am curious to inquire what Psych NPs in private practice do when they suspect an ASD diagnosis.  Have you made this diagnosis off a clinical exam or refer to neuropsychological testing, which I was I usually do?  Obviously, I tell patients what I suspect, educate, and then prescribe medictions to treat co-morbid conditions such as anxiety, depression, and irritability with use of our standard treatments (SSRIs, anti-psychotics, mood stabilizers).  There seems to be a large number of adults coming forward w concerns for ASD, and obviously ADHD (which I see as entirely problematic in relation to increased stimulant use and prescribing during the pandemic).  ...

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 ...
