About IAPN

IAPN is an international, professional 501(c)3 non-profit nursing organization founded in 2020 by Nurse Taylor Hayes. Today IAPN maintains hundreds of members located around the globe. IAPN headquarters are located in Dadeville, AL, USA. IAPN is a community partner of Psychedelic Science 2023 and partner of the American Cannabis Nurses Association.

Our Mission

Our mission is to promote increased global awareness and education on the topic of psychedelic medicines and to utilize the latest research in developing safe standards of nursing practice within an emerging field of study. Our mission is to aid every person in achieving safe, desirable outcomes when recovering from illness. 

Our Vision

Our vision is a world united in the mission to reduce pain and suffering across all populations. We intend to achieve our vision by providing safe, affordable education and improved access to psychedelic medicines to populations in need. We assess the latest evidence to bridge the knowledge gap between the most current U.S. Food and Drug Administration research breakthroughs and ancient widespread psychedelic plant/fungi/animal derived medicine practices long utilized in traditional cultures for a multitude of medicinal applications. We appreciate and recognize the value of indigenous medicine and the people who have long held these traditions.
