Year after year, the APNA national conference provides a preeminent platform to recognise and celebrate the best examples of primary health care nursing, further building on the expertise and collegiality of the formidable nurse workforce. Three days of tailored professional development for nurses working in primary health care around Australia, APNA’s annual national conference delivers inspiring keynotes from nurses leading the way; interactive workshops that will engage you; sessions from nurses making a difference and all the latest research to ensure you have the best information to take back to your practices.

The conference team are working diligently to develop a broad and action-inspiring program featuring workshops, keynotes, panels and breakfast sessions that are valuable and relevant to the daily practice of primary health care nurses. 

Every year, the conference provides opportunities to:

  • extend your scope of practice through hands-on clinical and leadership workshops
  • be inspired by peers
  • enhance your education and build on current skills, including updates on key guidelines and pressing policy issues
  • learn about new and innovative roles for nurses and models of care that can be adopted in similar settings
  • have input into key issues affecting nursing in primary health care
  • exposure to 50+ industry-leading exhibitors for further learning and relationship building
  • attain the CPD hours required for the year to meet national registration obligations.

Interactive learning tied in with lively social events will provide nurse delegates with the opportunity to connect and share their experiences, questions, passions and insights with experts and peers in primary health care.
