The Australian College of Nursing (ACN) is excited to launch our inaugural podcast during 2020 Year of the Nurse & Midwife. Throughout the year, Ben Jenkins MACN, a registered nurse and experienced podcaster, will interview nurses from a variety of backgrounds on topics relating to nurse practice and leadership.

What are podcasts and how do I listen to them?

A podcast is a series of audio shows. Think of it as your favourite re-occurring radio segment, except you can listen anywhere and anytime on a computer or mobile device. You can listen to The ACN Podcast with Ben Jenkins MACN by clicking the play button next to your favourite episode.
