Welcome to policy at ACN

Identifying, examining, initiating and responding to nursing and health policy are fundamental to ACN’s core business.

As Australia’s peak professional nursing organisation, ACN offers a respected perspective founded on professional nursing expertise to government and the health industry.

Through our ongoing policy activities, ACN
  • lobbies political leaders and decision makers
  • provides feedback to health sector consultations and
  • participates on a range of high level national, states and territories and non-government committees of significance to the nursing and health professions.
We take your ideas forward to Government and other health stakeholders.

ACN invites our members to contribute to the direction of the nursing profession and the health sector by participating in the activities of our policy division.
