This Geropsychiatric Nursing (GPN) Position Paper was developed to create and sustain a new vision for the nursing profession that will positively impact and improve the care of older adults with comorbid psychiatric/substance misuse disorders. This position paper was written by a diverse group of advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) with the collective intent to decrease stigma, remove controversy, and uphold a positive, person-centered, holistic approach to psychiatric/substance misuse disorders that reflects the highest respect and sensitivity for older adults and their families.
