AFN Partners with APSAC to Provide Dual Memberships
The Academy of Forensic Nursing is pleased to announce a new partnership with The American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children (APSAC). Through this partnership, current AFN members are invited to sign up for a one-year membership with APSAC at a discounted rate. Likewise, APSAC members are able to join AFN at a special one-year rate.
The mission of The American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children is to improve society’s response to the abuse and neglect of its children. APSAC envisions a world where all maltreated or at-risk children and their families have access to the highest level of professional commitment and service. APSAC is your source for networking, education, publications, and resources. Thousands of child maltreatment professionals from all over the world – attorneys, child protective services workers, law enforcement, nurses, physicians, researchers, teachers, psychologists, clergy, administrators, and allies – have joined APSAC’s effort to ensure that everyone affected by child maltreatment receives the best possible professional response.
