What are the workshops?
APNA is thrilled to deliver our crowd favourite Foundations of General Practice Nursing Workshops Australia wide.
General practice nursing is unlike other areas of nursing practice. Attending a Foundations workshop is the perfect way to build on your expertise, and engage with nurses in your local area. These workshops are developed and delivered by nurse leaders, and offer an engaging program that provides an overview of the key skills and knowledge required for your daily practice.
Whether you’re new or experienced in the general practice setting, there’s something for you to learn at a Foundations workshop.
It’s the perfect opportunity to gain up to 12 hours of APNA endorsed CPD while you learn, engage and network with nurses who understand what it’s like to work in general practice.

Supplement your learning from the Foundations workshop, with our workbook!
Give yourself the perfect introduction to general practice nursing with APNA’s Foundations of General Practice workbook.
This comprehensive workbook guides nurses new and transitioning to general practice through key components of this area of nursing, and will ensure a thorough understanding of the many facets of general practice.
Nurses will be taken through four key sections:
- Introduction to the general practice, the staff and the community
- Understanding primary health care: Foundational knowledge
- Quality improvement knowledge
- General practice: Key areas of knowledge
This workbook can be used to accompany an existing workplace orientation, help identify areas where additional knowledge is required, as well as a reference for CPD.
Please note: We are currently updating our workbook and it will be available at the beginning of 2021.
What you had to say
Everything in the workshop was relevant to my workplace and learning. It was extremely beneficial to me and I gained so much knowledge that I can't wait to take back to work and start implementing new things.
Being able to network with other nurses who had a wide range of experience was invaluable, as well as what was clarified for me in the presentations.
Very informative and engaging therefore easy to be attentive for the two days. Has given me more confidence in how I apply my skills.
All I can say is a big thanks to APNA team who work tirelessly to help and support nurses to reach their goals. I feel very proud to be their member and am looking forward to be part of the team as a general practice nurse.
Well run with fantastic educational information delivered professionally. Great two days
