The mission of the ACN Foundation is to provide access, through funding, in support of initiatives and opportunities for nurses to ensure optimum health of the Australian community. As we know, nurses are at the forefront of health care delivery which directly affect health outcomes in our communities.
One of the most important opportunities for nurses is to have access to develop not only their clinical skills but their leadership skills. Lifelong learning is fundamental for nurses to deliver effective health care.
The ACN Foundation supports the Australian College of Nursing’s Institute of Leadership through the establishment of bursaries and scholarships thanks to our generous donors.
We encourage donors to support Nurse Leadership so that we have the funds to add more scholarships for Australian nurses to continue their professional development to ensure leadership and skilled clinical practices.
