CPHCNW raises awareness of the current and potential contribution of community and primary health care nursing to the health care system and highlights its impact on the wellbeing of individuals and those in local communities. The campaign encourages nurses and their supporters to host an event at their workplace, university or community centre during the week to celebrate the valuable contribution Community and Primary Health Care Nurses make to the wellbeing of our society.
