Nursing’s role in Tasmanian health care delivery on the menu at the Australian College of Nursing’s cocktail event
Tonight the Australian College of Nursing (ACN) will facilitate another networking function at the Henry Jones Art Hotel Hobart for its Members and Fellows, with key health stakeholders from metropolitan, regional and rural areas attending.

ACN’s CEO, Adjunct Professor Kylie Ward FACN said “These events have been an excellent opportunity for ACN to engage with nurse leaders and emerging nurse leaders in Australia. Our members come from diverse professional backgrounds, from the public, private, aged care and primary health care sectors. It is important that ACN builds strong relationships with our members to understand the challenges occurring in the health system.”

ACN is honoured that Rebecca White MP, Shadow Minister for Health and Human Services, will be in attendance at tonight’s event.

This is the fifth of many VIP Cocktail Functions ACN will be hosting throughout every state and territory in the coming weeks.

The functions will focus on three key themes:

The power of nursing as a collective voice
The top three priorities for the future of nursing
The top three priorities our Members and Fellows want to see from ACN
The next ACN VIP Cocktail Function is scheduled in Adelaide on 7 July.

Adjunct Professor Ward said “ACN will continue to shape nurse leadership in Australia. Nurses play an essential role in driving change in the Australian health care system. Nurses can shape new models of care, enabling the health care system to address challenges in the provision of safe and quality care.”
