Knowledge is a powerful tool in healthcare and a well educated nurse can be the difference between a patient’s life and death. The Australian College of Nursing and it’s predecessors have strongly promoted the importance of continuing education and have provided a wide choice of subjects to enable nurses to expand their knowledge.

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. In choosing to support ACN Foundation to generating resources you are showing that the same level of generosity exists today.

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.
