ACN National Nurses Breakfast 2017

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The ACN National Nurses Breakfast is hosted each year in celebration of International Nurses Day on 12 May. The campaign encourages nurses and their supporters to host a breakfast or get-together at their workplace, university or community centre to celebrate the invaluable contribution nurses make to the health of our society.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the ACN National Nurses Breakfast in celebration of International Nurses Day on 12 May 2017.  Across the nation, there were 243 registered breakfasts with over 9,000 participants.  We hope you enjoyed the celebrations and look forward to your involvement again next year.
