Western Victoria PHN is firmly focused on recognising excellence in nursing within the primary care sector. The Primary Health Care Nurse Excellence Award forms part of Western Victoria PHN’s commitment to raising the awareness of the contribution of nurses in the primary care sector and acknowledgement of the significant role that primary health care nursing plays in driving quality improvements within primary health care.
The Primary Health Care Nurse Excellence Award 2018 recognises nurses practicing in the Western Victoria PHN region, who have demonstrated an outstanding contribution to the health and well-being of their patients, by undertaking a quality improvement activity within their practice.

Practice Nurse Networks
We want to hear from you
Practice Nurse Networks have been established to provide a forum for practice nurses (registered and enrolled) to communicate and exchange ideas with peers around a number of nursing and general practice issues.
