Nurse Practitioner Week 2020
Nurse Practitioner Week will be running from the 7th - 13th December in 2020.
Nurse Practitioner (NP) Week is one of the biggest weeks in the calendar.
Nurse Practitioner Day is traditionally celebrated on the 12th December and is identified as a date of national significance, as the first Nurse Practitioners were endorsed in Australia in the year 2000 - Ms Sue Denison and Ms Jane O’Connell. The event is so now celebrated the entire week, it is SO BIG!
In 2020, the ACNP has developed a campaign for this special week called:
Writing Our Own story
Helping You With Yours...
2020 is the 20th anniversary year for Nurse Practitioners practicing in Australia.
The road to becoming a NP is extensive, often unique and viewed as a privilege by Nurse Practitioners. Each Nurse Practitioner has a different story, and with NPs practising in Australia for over 20 years now, Nurse Practitioners are having to write their own stories, pave their own way, so that all patients and future generations can have access to quality health care.
