The International Council of Nurses was founded in Great Britain in 1899 and was the first international organisation for health care professionals.

The Australian College of Nursing is a proud member of the International Council of Nurses, serving as the Australian representative for the international federation of more than 130 nursing associations.


We’re here for nurses

Our mission is to ensure Australian nurses have access to educational, research, advocacy and leadership opportunities that will keep them highly skilled and at the cutting edge of health care delivery. We are here to support nurses by acknowledging a nurse’s education is an integral part of their lifelong learning.

We support Australian nurses and the profession in achieving the highest level of nursing excellence through the raising of funds from corporations, individuals and private Trusts and Foundations. We’re here for nurses.
