The Australian College of Nursing (ACN) is leading the way to empower nurses around the country to achieve the health and wellbeing they deserve. Nurses dedicate their lives to caring for others and often neglect looking after themselves in the process. We know how difficult it is to find the time to exercise, meal prep or even just take a moment to breath when you are doing shift work or working weekends. That’s why we have created the NurseStrong movement to encourage nurses to improve their physical, mental and emotional strength in a safe and supportive environment.

Pay it forward!

Our Random Acts of Kindness NurseStrong campaign encourages participants to ‘pay it forward’ by surprising others with inspirational messages. The campaign is based on the notion that bringing joy to others’ lives will also reward participants with a sense of gratitude, compassion and happiness.

Click here to receive your electronic Random Acts of Kindness Cards. We encourage you to print off the file, cut out the cards and distribute them to brighten the day of your colleagues, friends, loved ones or strangers. For example, you can place a card on someone’s workstation or windscreen.

NurseStrong calendars

Receive a FREE motivational calendar

We are continuously updating the tools we provide to support, inform and inspire NurseStrong participants.

To allow nurses to stay motivated throughout 2019 we are currently offering a free motivational calendar!

The calendar will help you stay on track by providing space to select one nutrition, exercise and mindfulness goal every month, tick off whether you have achieved the goal every day and choose how to reward yourself at the end of the month.
