In 2022, Nurse Practitioners (NPs) in Australia celebrate Nurse Practitioner Week from the 12-18 December 2022. The theme in 2022 is "Nurse Practitioners, the essential difference in healthcare."

Nurse Practitioners are proud of their nursing background, and carry with them the nursing philosophy of kindness, care, empathy, and the desire to help others. This philosophy also underpins NP practice and contributes to positive outcomes for NPs, their patients and communities.

Nurse Practitioners have differences that make them essential to healthcare, and a real asset to the future of their patients and health care in this country.
