Western Australia

Chair Message

G'Day from WA! and Welcome to the Wide Wild West Australian Chapter of the Australian College of Nurse Practitioners (ACNP).

I am proud to take the reins as chair of the 2016/17 commitee who have banded together over the past years to represent all the WA NP's finding employment and creating new voices every day in our vast state.

In July 2016 Our WA Chapter our annual education day was hosted at the Bendat Community centre in Wembley. We continue to create opportunities for skills workshops and demonstrations for members on a routine basis, and are working to secure regular venues and stakeholders in Western Australia. Continuing on from the success of our last Professional Development Day our appointed Education Convenor has set July 2017 for our next annual full day of education and skills training.

Our committe recognises the unique issues encountered by our rural and remote area members; we have therefore a 'Rural Representative' and encourage members and all interested parties to contact our current appointed committee member with any queries relating to policy, education, media or other NP related issues.

Please use this contact e-mail as a pathway for participation, wherever you live and practice. Everyone has something to contribute and although not everyone can provide ongoing input, we greatly value having your support, especially around areas pertaining to your specialty.

We are a passionate and active voice for our profession and love hearing from other members with their ideas, opportunities and challenges. We welcome new members and NP candidates to bring new ideas and feedback to our chapter of ACNP.  

Kindest Regards

Clinton Fonceca
