Let’s Talk Leadership, Canberra! 


As we proudly celebrate 75 years of nursing leadership, the Australian College of Nursing (ACN) is delighted to announce the return of the Let's Talk Leadership series in 2024. The series highlights high-profile leaders, who share their triumphs and invaluable lessons learnt. 


In the lead-up to the ACT elections, the significance of informed health leadership cannot be overstated. It gives us great pleasure to announce the ACT Minister for Health Rachel Stephen-Smith MLA, a beacon of healthcare advocacy and reform, as our guest in what promises to be an enlightening evening. 


Elected to the ACT Legislative Assembly in 2016 and a seasoned veteran in public policy, Rachel's insights are particularly valuable as we navigate the challenges and opportunities facing the ACT Nursing workforce ahead of the elections. Her commitment to health, family, and community services, combined with her support for nurse-led initiatives, makes her an instrumental figure in driving progressive changes within our sector. 


Bring a friend and stay for a networking reception with canapes and beverages and connect with like-minded nurses as we mark ACN’s 75-year legacy. 




Members: free, and may bring a non-member as a guest, limited to one guest per member. 
Non-members: $95 per person. Become a member to receive a complimentary ticket. 

Don't miss the chance to contribute to a future where the healthcare sector thrives under informed and inspired leadership. 


We look forward to welcoming you!
