Horatio and MAPN are happy to announce that the 4th European Festival of Psychiatric Nursing will be an accredited event for all delegates.The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland will accredit the event with those attending the full festival receiving between 15 -18 Continuing Nursing and Midwifery Educational units.The revised fees as agreed by the MAPN council are the following: Those members who will opt to pay their membership via the direct payment from MCH wage will no longer have €1 (one euro) deducted from their wage throughout the year, instead €7.50 (seven euro fifty) every 6 months will be deducted.Members who have this option already in place will be asked to sign a declaration saying that they agree with this slight increase in annual fee and subsequently the salaries section will be notified.Upon renewing the membership you will receive a membership card, plus a 16gb USB pen drive with MAPN logo as a gift.This system will allow us to have all memberships renewed every January.Delegates attending single days will receive units according to the number of hours they attend – one input hour usually equates to one unit.We tried to keep this increase as minimal as possible; hence the increase is just €2 per year.
In the coming weeks MAPN council members will be starting an exercise to collect signatures and members will also be asked to review their contact details in order to have an improved members’ database.
By becoming a member you will be helping the association to keep with the growing momentum and ascertain us as the voice for Maltese Psychiatric & Mental Health Nurses.
Also, by becoming a member you will benefit from various discounts in events organized by the MAPN together with promotions, newsletters and any other material in connection with the MAPN.

As you might know the Maltese Association of Psychiatric Nurses (MAPN) is 10 years old!
Throughout the years the MAPN has established itself as one of the main stakeholders in local Mental Health; at European level, the MAPN is co-founder of the European Psychiatric Nurses Association (HORATIO) and has been recognized as an important contributor in the movement for improved recognition for Psychiatric Mental Health Nurses. This minor increase should reflect and contribute towards the increased expenses that our growing association is facing.
