BRIER HILL -- Maine General Hospital’s C.J. Spotswood, a behavioral health registered nurse, was a featured presenter at the American Psychiatric Nursing Association’s (APNA) 33rd Annual Conference recently in New Orleans, La.

C.J. is the son of Frank and Sue Spotswood of Brier Hill. He graduated from Morristown Central in 2000, received his RN degree 2003 and a second degree from SUNY Potsdam in 2006, and is on track to receive a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner graduate degree next year.

His 45-minute podium presentation, “Exploring the Potential Use of Psychedelics for the Improvement of Persistent and Intractable Mental Health Symptoms,” came out of work he has done for his degree program.

Spotswood has worked for nearly two decades as nurse, at Maine General for the past five years. He is an adjunct faculty member for undergraduate students in the nursing program at the University of Maine.
