Welcome to TPAPN: Passion to Help Nurses Heal

The Texas Peer Assistance Program for Nurses is a non-punitive, confidential, and voluntary alternative for RNs and LVNs with concerns related to substance use and mental health. TPAPN encourages nurses to seek help with psychiatric or substance use disorders. By recognizing and managing nurses with psychiatric and substance use disorders in the workplace, TPAPN advances patient safety. Guided by an Advisory Committee comprised of representatives from a number of important Texas nursing organizations and other stakeholders, TPAPN offers a minimum 1-to-5 year monitoring program (5-year for APN’s) that is voluntary and abstinence-based.

 

Who is TPAPN?

Since 1987, TPAPN has served as the alternative program for RNs and LVNs of Texas whose nursing practice may have been impaired by psychiatric or substance use disorders. TPAPN recognizes that nurses are not immune to these chronic, progressive, and potentially fatal diseases. One vital aspect of the TPAPN program is the approximately 200 active volunteer nurse advocates who provide one-to-one peer support and education to TPAPN participants. 

Who Does TPAPN Help?

In addition to the nurses helped by TPAPN, the program supports employers and nurse managers to promote a safer and more positive work environment. Health care facilities and organizations regard TPAPN as a positive component to their quality assurance, risk management, and turnover cost-avoidance systems. TPAPN graduates over 150 nurses annually.
