Northern Nurse Network

In July 2014, the Northern Adelaide Primary Health Care Nurse Network (‘Northern Nurse Network’) was formed by local nurses working in general practice. The Northern Nurse Network is supported by the Northern Health Network (NHN) and affiliated with the Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association (APNA).

The Northern Nurse Network is a member-driven and committee-led group that has grown to over 100 members. The members direct the topics and Professional Development activities. The volunteer Network committee organises and coordinates meetings supported by a dedicated Program Support Officer from the NHN.

What We Do

The Northern Nurse Network offers local nurse working in general practice the opportunity to share knowledge, network and build working relationships through mentoring and education roundtables that contributes to members’ Continuous Professional Development (CPD).

The Northern Nurse Network offers opportunities to participate in:

  • Member-led face to face network meetings
  • Educational roundtable meetings every 8-12 weeks
  • Identifying professional development topics
  • Professional mentoring and support
  • NHN e-Forum platform

Networking Meetings

Registrations are essential as meetings are capped at 30 participants per session and are often quickly booked out. Visit the Education & Events page to find an upcoming session.

Online e-Forum

The Northern Health Network e-Forum can be access by all members and serves as a platform for nurses to connect, ask questions and share information relevant to nurses in general practice.

The registration for the NHN e-Forum is a membership benefit and access will be granted upon receipt of your membership form.

The Northern Nurse Network endorses the APNA Nurse Connect e-Forum. Access to APNA Nurse Connect e-Forum is limited to APNA members.
