Summary of activities

The Australian College of Nursing is a membership based organisation dedicated to advancing nurse leadership to enhance health care. Nurse leadership advances health care and is committed to the belief that all nurses, regardless of their job title or level of seniority, can be leaders. Thousands of extraordinary nurses from across the country are brought together to build a strong collective voice for nursing and command the respect and recognition that the Nursing profession deserves. 1. ACN advocates on behalf of the nursing profession 2. The expertise of ACN’s members helps to shape health care and aged care policies We provide a collective voice for the nursing profession by utilising our members’ experience and knowledge to provide input into health and aged care debate and policy. We provide opportunities for our members to shape our position statements about important aspects of nursing, aged care and health care delivery to all Australians. 3. ACN nurtures the nurse leaders of today and tomorrow We are committed to encouraging, educating and supporting nurses, so they can develop and grow their skills, confidently take a leadership role in health care or aged care and provide the essential professional, economic and clinical perspectives that can shape care models. We are an information hub for our members and offer them a number of convenient and valuable tools including career development, leadership skills development, networking and library services. 4. ACN is an accredited higher education provider for qualified nurses As an educational organisation, our postgraduate, continuing professional development (CPD) and training courses are renowned for equipping nurses with further knowledge of their chosen specialty and extending their clinical skills. We specialise in nurse leadership education, courses and workshops. ACN also develops customised education courses to meet organisational training needs.
