Learning on the go with APNA online learning
Renew as an Organisation
APNA membership and Professional Indemnity Insurance renewal deadline is approaching — 31 March 2023.
2023 is going to be an excellent year for primary health care nurses and a terrific year to be an APNA member.
After a few very challenging years, APNA is celebrating you and helping you celebrate together this year. Not only are we offering education all over the country, but we are also introducing new ways to learn and connect with your peers.
Are you the primary contact of the organisation? You'll need to renew the organisation membership so your staff can access all member benefits. If your nurses hold individual Professional Indemnity Insurance with APNA, they can renew their insurance here once their organisation membership has been renewed.
Bringing education to your team
Following the success of state-based face-to-face events in 2022, we have planned short evening educational events. Members can join in-person, online or at one of the 'live sites' across the country, giving CPD and the opportunity to catch up with other nurses from your area.
The Festival of Nursing in Perth this July
It's a national nursing conference, SUPERCHARGED! We are bringing the vibe of a festival to CPD and letting nurses have fun with other nurses from across the country. We've negotiated discounted airfares from the east coast for nurses, so join us in Perth for the most significant nursing event in the primary health care calendar!
More online learning, podcasts, and videos to keep members' skills current
We're investing in our APNA education suite to provide even more education across various digital learning methods.
Fully loaded advocacy efforts — putting nurses' views and ideas in front of those in power.
We're putting data into action to help us champion the cause of all primary health care nurses. Off the back of the biggest-ever response to the APNA Workforce Survey, we have the key to open essential doors in the corridors of power at the state and federal levels. With the key working groups wrapping up in late 2022, including the Strengthening Medicare Taskforce, and recommendations being worked into the 2023-24 Federal Budget, we'll be working to ensure the Budget recognises that Australia needs nurses' working to the top of their scope. We'll also be pushing state-funded areas of primary health care, including during the NSW state election.
The commencement of a new APNA five-year strategy — ensuring primary health care nurses are valued, visible and respected.
The overall APNA strategic plan for the next five years has just been set. We're going to ensure the importance of primary health care nursing is reflected in government policy and invest in APNA and primary health care nursing for longevity and success. The strategy also launches a new member-only Nurse Education Fund, provides a pathway to embed the primary health care nursing Career and Education Frameworks widely across nursing education and a bold plan to offer more nursing students a primary health care placement during their studies.
Access to Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) is designed for primary health care nurses.
With an APNA membership, members can purchase the APNA member PII that covers their full scope of practice (except acute midwifery services) anywhere in the world (excluding the USA and Canada). With $10 million cover per medical malpractice or public liability claim and $30 million worth of cover per year, they’re covered with a policy in their name if a problem ever arises. Recently some other insurers excluded some activities, including ear syringing, from their cover. The APNA member policy covers nurses for work activities, providing they are suitably qualified and are working by the NMBA registration standards, professional codes, and guidelines.
These new incentives in 2023 are underpinned by APNA’s outstanding member benefits, including; access to the latest industry news and guidelines; up-to-date education and resources, communities; expert advice and support; optional PI insurance and a range of other perks.
Renew, and your team will be rewarded.
Your team will be gifted some free, exclusive CPD when renewing them by the 31st of March
They will receive access to some of the best education from the 2022 APNA Conference Roadshow. Learn from experts speaking at various events across the country; it’s like we’ve invented a teleporter and a time travel machine all in one!
14 months' Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) for 12 - $149
If your team still need to get APNA member PII, they can add it when they renew in February, and they will receive 14 months for the price of 12! Conditions Apply. The offer expires on 28 February 2023.
