2021 APNA Conference Roadshow

You’re invited to the biggest nursing conference in 2021, the APNA Conference Roadshow!

Between September and November 2021, join other nurses at one of our eight in-person events across the country. In 2021 we're bringing an APNA Conference to you, there’s an event in every state or territory. 

Come and learn, connect and re-energise!

At each event you’ll:

  • Learn the latest clinical guidance, gain new knowledge to grow your scope of practice and discover new ways to provide better patient care.
  • Connect with other nurses from various primary health care settings, engage with brands that help you care for your patients and meet experts who can provide advice.
  • Re-energise and feel empowered to be the best nurse you can be and incorporate your learnings immediately.

APNA Conference Roadshow events will be COVID-safe, so ticket numbers are limited and will sell out.

2021 APNA Conference Roadshow program

It’s a busy year, but it's important for nurses to keep up to date with CPD and the latest clinical guidance.

APNA’s 20th Birthday

2021 marks the 20th birthday of APNA. Included in every registration is a ticket to an APNA 20th birthday party. 


COVID-safe events

We know how important face-to-face education is for nurses, that’s why we are doing everything we can to host in-person events this year. We are keeping a close eye on the various regulations being enforced by the different states and territories and working closely with our venues and conference organiser. We’ll ensure each Roadshow event is COVID-safe. 

COVID may still be throwing some curveballs during September-November. If your event is unable to go ahead on the scheduled dates, APNA will let you know and reschedule that event as soon as possible. 

Fair cancelation policy:

If you need to cancel your Roadshow registration and your ticket cannot be re-sold, the following will apply:

  • Cancellations up to 10 days prior to event date will incur a 50% cancellation fee, unless your ticket can be sold to someone else.

  • Cancellations less than 10 days will receive no refund due to catering and venue agreements, unless your ticket can be sold to someone else.

Note: if you or APNA can re-sell your Roadshow ticket, APNA will cover the cost to change the name on the ticket. For other ticket changes, including name changes and duplicate registration payments, the booking portal company may charge an administration fee.
