Who we are


The Western Australian Practice Nurses Association, Inc. (WAPNA) is an association of nurses registered with The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), who are employed in doctors' surgeries (whether general practitioners, specialists, pathology practices or private outpatients clinics), or nurses and other persons with an interest in this area of nursing, including students of nursing.

The Association is a not-for-profit support group, which is run by volunteers. It provides a focus for practice nurses and for other groups seeking to make contact and have dialogue with practice nurses. It facilitates professional communication between practice nurses to break down professional isolation and assists members with continuing professional development. The Association develops the role of the practice nurse, liaises with other professional groups, provides opportunities for social contact with professional colleagues and, as required, provides expert opinion on practice nursing.
