Nurse Practitioner Week 6-12 December 2021

KICK START the conversation CHALLENGE

In 2021, Nurse Practitioners in Australia celebrate their 21st year of practice.  During Nurse Practitioner Week, running from the 06 - 12 December 2021, our aim is to kick start the conversation about Nurse Practitioners (NPs). Let the conversation be inclusive of Nurse Practitioners and the incredible care and value they add to their patients/clients in health care around the world.

In 2021, we are setting several challenges during NP Week:


Sounds a lot we know! However, if every endorsed NP in Australia (2200+) has just 10 conversations during NP Week (6-12 December 2021) this is a further 22,000+ conversations that have helped to educate, recognise, and empower the conversation about Nurse Practitioners. Don’t forget to raise the opportunity to feedback on the NP 10 Year plan with everyone you speak with, via


You may have a Nurse Practitioner (NP) as part of your health care team, teach nursing students, work with a NP, have a NP working in your local community, or wish to support Nurse Practitioners. We challenge you to kick start the conversation during NP Week (6-12 December 2021) within your communities and assist in building knowledge, recognition, and educate others on the value of Nurse Practitioners to Australian health care. Your help will go a long way.


NP Week conversations can be with:

  • Patients
  • Clients
  • Workplaces
  • University Students
  • Local Members of Parliament
  • State Government
  • Federal Government
  • Friends
  • Family,
  • Feedback on the NP 10 Year plan, and;
  • Anyone that will listen!

NP Week 2021 aims to educate, recognise, and empower the conversation about Nurse Practitioners. 

We want you to be creative, don’t be shy.  If you have a great way to kick start a conversation, let us and the world know about it.

Let the challenge begin!
