Nursing in the Community Week 2022

Join us for Nursing in the Community Week (12 – 18 September 2022) as we celebrate the roles nurses take in coordinating and connecting our communities.

You can also join us on social media by using the hashtag #nurseswhereyouneedthem and by tagging us at @acn_tweet on Twitter and @acn_nursing on Instagram – we love to see your thoughts and experiences during Nursing in the Community Week!

Connecting our community

Nurses are at the heart of most health teams, playing a crucial role in health promotion, disease prevention and treatment. As the health professionals who are closest to the community, they have a particular role in developing new models of community-based care and support local efforts to promote health and prevent disease.

Proudly sponsored by
