The Nurse Practitioner New Zealand [NPNZ] Executive, invites submissions for abstracts for our biannual conference “NPNZ (R)evolution” to be held in Blenheim, Marlborough on 10, 11 & 12 April 2019. We will be expecting an audience of NZ registered NPs, NP intern’s, Prescribing RNs, internationally registered NPs and other health professionals who will be attending.

Nurse Practitioners are now a stronger and vital part of the workforce than ever - with over 300 NPs currently registered and spread throughout the country - in every DHB region covering a wide range of healthcare fields. We are expert clinicians in our individual fields, we are improving access to care throughout New Zealand, we are innovators, we are team players, we are sustainable, and some are ‘social entrepreneurs’ running their own businesses or new models of care developed to better meet the needs of population groups they work with.  

NPNZ invites NP speakers that will showcase the very best clinical content, innovation and ‘out of the square’ practice reflecting and celebrating the (R)evolution of NP care in NZ with the aim to share knowledge and inform, as well as create some platform for debate amongst the most clinically expert influential leader nurses in NZ.  We want to continue improving and maintaining excellence of NP practice and professional competency.
