Colorado Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nurses

Name Change of our Group

Posted almost 4 years ago by Gretchen Armbruster

DNA 31 is also known as the Colorado Society of Clinical Specialists in Psychiatric Nursing (CSCSPN). While this is a fun acronym to say, the name does not describe our work as therapists, prescribers, educators, consultants, researcher, administrators, and leaders. It has been proposed that we change our name to reflect our advanced practice roles in psychiatric nursing and at this time the Board would like to propose the following names:

Colorado Psychiatric Advanced Practice Nurses (DNA 31)
Colorado Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nurses (DNA 31)

We would like to hear from you if you have strong preferences!

We would also entertain other suggestions and so if members have other names that they would like to suggest, please submit these and your input about the two proposed names no later than April 13th to Ruby Martinez at Thank you!
