AANP President April Kapu explains how residents in states with Full Practice Authority legislation benefit from expanded, excellent quality care.
As a psych nursing instructor, I had to deal with some nursing students' misconceptions about mental health. Then COVID-19 brought on more challenges.
I knew becoming a corrections nurse would be exciting, but I didn't know how much I would learn about untreated mental health conditions, empathy, and more.
My nursing story expresses my frustration, exhaustion, and sleep deprivation, but also the love, appreciation, and support that I experienced.

I was a soldier. I had no intention of entering the medical field, let alone joining the frontlines of nursing. But then I witnessed what nurses can do.
