"What an honour it was to attend this year's ACNP Conference in Melbourne as the QUT Scholarship recipient... I was able to network with colleagues from the Central West of NSW but also had the opportunity to meet with other Nurse Practitioners from a multitude of specialities and found them all to be open in sharing their own NP Journey. Hearing their stories and simply being around people who were passionate about what they do, encouraged me on my journey."
