Acknowledging past champions
If all nurses are leaders…
"We’d have a very connected, engaged and powerful nursing workforce." - Simone

Understanding the evolution of the relationship of nurses and other professions to health is important to remembering the past and understanding the nature of health care today. With a view to facilitating such awareness, the Nursing and Health Care History special issue will provide a forum for showcasing research and dialogue around a range of aspects related to nursing and health care history.
Potential topics include nursing or midwifery history, Indigenous health care, health care heritage, archives and museums, biographical papers, historical methods in nursing history inquiry and any other related issue.
Deadline for submissions is 30 April 2020.
ACN’s Career Coaching program provides an opportunity for experienced nurse leaders to give back to our profession and share knowledge and advice with undergraduate nursing students at the beginning of their nursing journeys.
The theme for the 5th History Conference — “Challenging, Changing and Champions Past” — will present research on historical and personal perspectives related to nursing and its broader contexts.

To publicly recognise the special nurses and midwives in your life, we are creating a virtual inspiration wall in 2020. Give a shout-out to someone who inspired you to become a nurse and/or someone who continues to inspire your nursing journey.
ACN is excited to provide a wide range of opportunities that you can engage with throughout 2020.
Make 2020 the year you connect with your profession and progress your career.
