Nursing is a profession that touches everybody’s life from the beginning to the end. Perhaps this is the reason that year after year Nursing is voted as Australia’s most trusted profession.

The ACN Foundation is committed to supporting and strengthening nursing and particularly the development of nurse leadership. We are part of the Australia College of Nursing Group. Together with ACN grants are being provided for nursing led research and policy projects, scholarships for post graduate education and professional development. This professional development is not only making a difference to the recipients but to the multiple patients that benefit from their enhanced skills.

These gifts are occurring because of past generosity. The Board of ACN recognised that in order to make more funds available for both current and future nurses that the creation of a foundation and the involvement of supporters was critical.

The ACN Foundation is dedicated to transforming the nation’s health through the power of nursing. We find and fund new ways of solving problems, generating new ideas and tools, and laying the framework to promote a more positive experience for both nurses and patients. However, to do so we need your help.
