APNA Conference Roadshow

You’re invited to our biggest ever nursing conference, the APNA Conference Roadshow!

Join other nurses at one of our in-person events across the country. We're bringing an APNA Conference to you, there’s events 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.

APNA’s 21st Birthday

In 2022, APNA is turning 21! Included in every registration is a ticket to an APNA 21st 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 again. 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 in the lead-up to our Roadshow events. If any event is impacted by COVID and cannot proceed on the scheduled dates, APNA will reschedule that event to backup dates we have on-hold, if those dates are impacted, we have further dates penciled in. Cancellation of events will be the last resort.

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.

We are working in partnership with Northern Territory PHN to bring the APNA Conference Roadshow to Darwin as part of their Compass event. This event has now been postponed to August 2022. There will be more information on this when it comes to hand. Subscribe to The Connect newsletter to receive the latest.
