The Australian College of Nursing advances nurses’ ability to shape Victorian health policy at VIP Cocktail Function in Melbourne
Tonight the Australian College of Nursing (ACN) will facilitate another networking function for its Members and Fellows with key health stakeholders from metropolitan, regional and rural areas.

ACN CEO Adjunct Professor Kylie Ward FACN said the success of the VIP Cocktail Functions in Perth, Canberra and Sydney was representative of the dedication of ACN’s Members and Fellows. “It has been fantastic for our Members, Fellows and guests to meet esteemed colleagues, Members of Parliament and the Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officers who make health policy decisions,” she said.

This is the fourth 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 Hobart on Tuesday 5 July.

ACN CEO Adjunct Professor Kylie Ward FACN said “ACN is excited to work more closely with our Members and Fellows to truly understand the challenges nurses are facing on a daily basis. Together we will influence policy and play a role in reshaping the health care of Australians”.
