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 Australian College of Nursing Group.

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.

Research by nurses is practical by nature with a strong focus on patient care. Likewise, policy development from the nursing fraternity is pragmatic. Through the encouragement of targeted nursing lead research and policy development both the individual patient and the overall Australian Healthcare system will benefit.
