NfN Logo

Would you like to join us on a nine-day, eight-night Eastern Caribbean cruise in November 2018?

Let's combine education with pleasure as we explore the eastern Caribbean together.

Nurses from all practice areas join us for an action-packed, memorable nine-day adventure, featuring education, networking, exploration, relaxation & fun. 

The Conference theme is:
 "The Latest Advances in Health Care Delivery and their Implication for Nursing Practice"

The content will be both relevant and of interest to Nurses working in the acute hospital setting, community health, public health, aged care, and doctor surgeries.  As well as those Nurses working in the area of policy development, health education, and Nursing research.

Nurses who work in speciality fields such as child health, paediatrics, dermatology, mental health, operating theatres, and day surgery, to name a few, will also benefit from the Conference content as the topics will impact on the delivery of Nursing services across the health care spectrum.

We'll combine education with pleasure: with education sessions provided and/or facilitated by Cheryl Dezotti and Sue Walker, both industry-recognised education experts. 

The Venue - Harmony of the Seas

Seen one cruise ship, seen them all?  Not so when it comes to this amazing vessel!

We will explore a number of different ports and you will spend time with fellow Nurses in an exclusive setting, on one of the most exceptional ships sailing in the Caribbean - the Harmony of the Seas.

Harmony of the Seas is the largest cruise ship in the world and the provides the ultimate cruising adventure. It boasts 7 different neighbourhoods, 20 different dining options, a world-class casino, amazing kids area,  including a Dreamworks Experience, a plethora of duty-free shopping and much more.

Here are a couple of videos to whet your appetite for fun!

   

Your family and friends are more than welcome to join you and they will be spoilt for choice with the many activities to keep them busy onboard the ship while you attend the Conference program. After hours, they can join you for all the onboard activities as well as our exclusive shore tours.
