Nurse Practitioner Week 12-18 December 2022

12 December 2022

In 2022, Nurse Practitioners (NPs) in Australia celebrate Nurse Practitioner Week from the 12-18 December 2022. The theme in 2022 is "Nurse Practitioners, the essential difference in healthcare."

Nurse Practitioners are proud of their nursing background, and carry with them the nursing philosophy of kindness, care, empathy, and the desire to help others. This philosophy also underpins NP practice and contributes to positive outcomes for NPs, their patients and communities.

Nurse Practitioners have differences that make them essential to healthcare, and a real asset to the future of their patients and health care in this country.

The ANMF says Nurse Practitioner Week is an opportunity for us all to celebrate and appreciate the crucial role Nurse Practitioners play in delivering quality care and improving health outcomes across Australian communities.

ANMF Federal Secretary Annie Butler said this year’s Nurse Practitioner theme of ‘Nurse Practitioners, the essential difference in healthcare’, was particularly relevant given not only the contribution NPs currently make to our health and aged care systems but the potential they have to increase their contribution to improving the health of our communities. NPs could play a critical role in relieving the current pressures on health systems around the country.
