Festival of Nursing

The Festival of Nursing – it’s an annual nursing conference, SUPERCHARGED!  

The Festival of Nursing is an annual conference for nurses, hosted in Australia. The last event was held in Perth from 27-29 July 2023 and the next event will be in Adelaide from 25-27 July 2024.

The Festival of Nursing features a variety of speakers, workshops, and networking opportunities. Past speakers have included leading experts in nursing, healthcare, and technology. The workshops cover a wide range of topics, such as patient-centered care, the use of technology in nursing, and the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration. The networking opportunities provide nurses with a chance to meet with colleagues from all over the world and learn about new developments in the nursing field.

Join us in Adelaide, South Australia from 25-27 July 2024!

Building on two of the most successful health conferences in 2023, with substantial content crossover, The Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association (APNA) and The Australasian Society of Lifestyle Medicine (ASLM) are combining forces in 2024 to deliver an unforgettable experience for delegates – the 2024 Essential Health Summit.

The two associations are merging the Festival of Nursing and Lifestyle Medicine conference into one cohesive event. An addition in 2024, the one-day Primary Health Care Congress is added, bringing together leaders from across primary health.

Experience the ultimate event for health and well-being professionals. The Essential Health Summit will provide three days of dynamic presentations, interactive workshops and inspiring talks. Joint plenaries will sit alongside specialised sessions allowing you to curate your experience across the three events. Hear from renowned speakers, take part in insightful discussions covering the latest developments in health and lifestyle medicine, and explore cutting-edge products and services from exhibitors in the healthcare and lifestyle industry.
