Representing your profession

A key role of APNA has been to represent the views and concerns of primary health care nurses and ensure that the voice of nurses is heard. 

We provide representation in a variety of ways.

APNA responds to consultations on your behalf. See our Advocacy, and Consultations and submissions page for recent examples. We provide formal feedback for consultation on new initiatives, Medicare changes and legislation affecting nurses. 

We provide a large number of representatives from our membership and staff to various projects and advisory committees where we feel that representation is of key value to nurses and their patients. Keep an eye on APNA communications for opportunities to represent APNA.


APNA is always on the lookout for volunteers and encourages all nurses to put up their hands when they get the chance. Opportunities for committees, working parties, focus groups and more come up all the time and usually the only requirement is that you are a nurse working in primary health care. Be a part of your profession and remember, your opinion counts.

The Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
