Building Nurse Capacity (BNC): Are you looking to take the next step in your career? Want to learn new skills and knowledge so you can deliver a new model of

care? The Building Nurse Capacity Project will focus on the development of nurse-led (team-based) models of care that meet local population health needs, and contribute to building the

capacity of the healthcare team. Grant funding and APNA support will be provided to successful applicants.  It will help you promote close collaboration between nurses and health practitioners,

as well as the primary health care sector, health leaders, organisations and consumers, thanks to the team-based care approach.
