2017 NNCA Conference

Registrations are now open

Nurturing is an action which has many layers

Thursday 2 and Friday 3 November 2017

Times: See the conference schedule for details

Te Wharewaka O Poneke
15 Jervois Quay


This year’s NNCA conference focuses on the theme of nurturing and how we engage in it as a process. Nurturing is a very human trait, and is an integral part of human identity - not only do we leave our fingerprints on the lives of others by nurturing them, they nurture us in return.

At the same time we must recognise our own responsibility to nurture ourselves as well and this conference will explore the ways in which we can identify our needs and nurture ourselves professionally and personally. We look forward to sharing this unique event with you.

COINN 2019 Conference - Auckland

NNCA are proud to announce our bid to host the Council of International Neonatal Nurses (COINN) international conference in 2019 was successful!

The judging panel commented that the bid was very detailed, professional and it was obvious that we had thought about plans for the conference.

The NNCA local organising committee, with the assistance of Tourism New Zealand, will now prepare to pitch the conference and New Zealand at the 2016 COINN conference in Vancouver.
