Who we are and what we do

The Australian College of Nursing (ACN) is the preeminent and national leader of the nursing profession. We are committed to our intent of advancing nurse leadership to enhance health care and strongly believe that all nurses, regardless of their job title or level of seniority, are leaders.

Leadership is a mindset and a set of actions, commitments and beliefs that produce results. Nurse leaders and nurses with leadership skills are needed at every level of the health and aged care systems, to inform and shape the strategic direction and drive necessary changes.

Our membership, events and higher education services allow nurses to stay informed, connected and inspired and become the best they can be. We are excited to lead change and create a strong, collective voice for nursing by bringing together thousands of extraordinary nurses from across the country.
