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.

Drink less in seven days!

Do you want to cut back on your alcohol consumption without having to quit altogether?

It’s no secret that many people turn to a glass of wine (or two, or three…) after a difficult day at work. Alcohol can sometimes be used as a coping mechanism to help nurses deal with stress and exhaustion.

A lifestyle health behavior study found that nurses and midwives had higher levels of risky drinking activity compared to the general population.

To tackle this issue we have teamed up with Georgia Foster, a renowned hypotherapist, to bring you our latest NurseStrong benefit.

We are excited to offer you an exclusive 50% discount on the world’s first ‘drink less program’, which has been celebrated around the world for its 97% success rate.

The program is delivered fully online so you can access it in the comfort and privacy of your own home whenever it suits you. Register now to claim your exclusive discount offer.

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.
