The North Coast Primary Health Network (NCPHN) partnered with Southern Cross University in 2015 to develop peer primary care nurse networks from Tweed Heads to Port Macquarie. A survey was distributed to all primary health care nurses in the NCPHN footprint. The survey was completed by 85 nurses, 70% of those were working in general practice and 85% indicated an interest in attending a network meeting.

In May 2017, with the support of APNA, meetings were launched in four locations. Meetings in 2017 were attended by 350 nurses and all were led by a local nurse coordinator. The meetings were evaluated by 96% of participants as excellent/good. The NCPHN has subsequently recruited two clinical nurse advisers to plan, coordinate and drive these meetings into 2018.
