Nanopore isn't able to generate a full-length read per bacterial genome yet, but Nick Loman has had one run where he found 7 reads that covered the whole E. coli genome.

For single isolates, single-contig completion of bacteria and plasmids should be very easy with MinION long reads. A mixed sample will be a bit more difficult.
