Dear Advanced Practice Nurses,

Each year PAPN of Houston hosts Mind Matters, an annual education conference for APRN and APRN students with an interest in psychiatry. Our conference has continued to grow, and this year we are working with PAPN of Texas to feature content exclusively developed and presented by Advanced Practice Nurses!

A Call for Abstracts is currently open! All APRNs are invited to share their passion and expertise among colleagues at Mind Matters 2019! For consideration, please email your abstract to papnweb@gmail.com before December 1st, 2018. Selected presenters will be notified by December 10th, 2018.

Each presentation will be allocated 60-minutes. The Conference’s agenda will be finalized once presentations are confirmed. An honorarium will be provided for presenters.
