Nurse Practitioners are now an established part of the nursing model in most states but challenges and opportunities still exist. A dynamic program has been organised to stimulate discussion on economic viability, sustainability and accountability. Success for the future depends on our commitment to develop and promote this role to health care professionals, politicians and members of the public.

The ANPA Conference Committee would like to warmly welcome national and international speakers and delegates to Melbourne, ‘the most liveable city in the world’, in October 2008. We invite you to enjoy this vibrant, cosmopolitan city that offers a staggering selection of restaurants, funky boutiques, café-filled laneways, cool bars, art galleries and colourful gardens.

Why not extend your stay for the Spring Racing Carnival!
