HB2602, which would have expanded CSII authority to psychiatric/mental health APRNS (among other progressive changes for APRNS in this state) passed out of committee on a unanimous 11-0 vote. However, it did not make it on the House Calendar for all members to vote on and was killed. This is still considered great progress and PAPNA membership is thankful for the strong leadership of our president, who spearheaded the efforts to get the bill as far as it did.
Mark your calendars! The annual Austin NAMI walk date has been set for Saturday, September 26th at 8am. As tradition dictates, the PAPNA members will march with other supporters to raise money for NAMI, an outstanding non-profit organization dedicated to advocating for and improving the lives of those living with mental illness and their families. Contact austinpsychAPRNs@gmail.com if you are interested in walking with us or ordering a t-shirt.
