The College of Nursing was established as a professional body to represent, assist, educate and support nurses. Membership spans every Australian State and Territory, and 17 countries worldwide.
Creating nursing’s future
To lead the development of the profession in line with the changing needs of the community, trends in health service delivery and the aspirations of nursing professionals themselves.
The College of Nursing provides support for nurses, while contributing to the creation of a better health care system for all Australians.
These goals are achieved through education and professional development for all nurses, and by contributing to policy making with governments and relevant health organisations.
The College of Nursing represents nurses at all stages of their careers, providing access to the latest information on nursing practice and giving support to facilitate career advancement.
This focus leads to continuing benefits for health care systems through developing greater awareness of the significance of nursing to other health professionals, relevant government and non-government organisations and the wider community.
