NP Connect events are run as state based face to face events and give our members a chance to connect with each other.
These events offer a casual environment for networking with your peers and learning about a range of topics delivered by invited speakers.

ACNP National Conference
The ACNP National Conference gathers more than 400+ senior health practitioners providing an exciting program, including welcome reception, keynote speakers, workshops, and gala awards dinner.
This conference is a perfect networking opportunity for all delegates, to inspire leadership and enhance clinical expertise.
The State and venues change each year ensuring access is shared around the country creating equal access for all members.
The next event is the 2023 ACNP National Conference in Melbourne in October 2023.
Symposiums are State based to enable best practice in addressing relevant local issues. This is needed as each State Government Health Department has differing requirements.
This Symposium occurs in different State/Territories around the country to allow for increased access to members who are not able to travel great distances.
Symposiums are designed by members to ensure their highest preferences are addressed. This can be done through guest speakers, Case Study sessions, Facilitated discussions and sponsored presentations.
The ACNP is currently developing a series on online learning modules.
The modules can be completed in your own time and your own pace.
We host a series of webinars throughout the year which focus on speciality topics.
Our webinars are often presented by fellow Nurse Practitioners and are an economical way to increase your CPD hours.
Webinars are schedule during the day and in the evening.
Be sure to check the ACNP Events Calendar for the upcoming webinars.
"I have learnt a lot of valuable contraindications, side effects and drug interactions today that I will take with me to my practice. Most importantly, this workshop reinforced my view on the necessity of de-prescribing and use of non-pharmacological options. Thank you to Jenny for sharing her knowledge and experience!"
