We invite registered and enrolled nurses to broaden their knowledge and gather the latest information relevant to their role.   The New Zealand Aged Care Association, in partnership with EBOS Healthcare and Careerforce are delivering a series of educational seminars across the country.

Attending these seminars will give participants the chance to meet other professionals working in aged care. Places are limited, so we encourage people wishing to attend to reserve seats now!
