The Australian College of Nursing (ACN) supports members to be the best they can be by keeping them informed, connected and inspired. We enable nurses to expand their influence, make a difference and give back to our profession. We are excited to drive collaboration and a strong, collective voice for nursing by bringing together thousands of extraordinary nurses from across the country.
We are proud to be the national professional organisation for nurse leaders: nurses with an interest in leadership, nurses aspiring to leadership roles and nurses in leadership roles across the Australian health system. We recognise that the leadership capabilities of all nurses play a critical role in the delivery of health services to the Australian community and we are dedicated to our intent of advancing nurse leadership to enhance health care.
