COVID-19 Nurses Support Strategy

This strategy addresses the professional issues nurses are facing across the system – for our members and non-members. It focuses on information, upskilling, advocacy, support for nurses, health system reforms for professional practice and community awareness.


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.
