The conference aims to engage with a wide range of nurses (not just military), providing an overview of both operational and strategic military nursing experiences. Attendees can expect to hear insightful and thought-provoking presentations from a range of keynote speakers. The event will be run by ACN’s Military Nursing Community of Interest (COI), a collective of like-minded nurses from across Australia working in the Australian Defence Force (ADF), the Australian Public Service (APS) and contracted nursing staff. The COI supports the profession of military nurses and encourages engagement with those who have an affiliation with the military.

Further information on the Conference is available at https://www.acn.edu.au/nurseclick/national-conference-to-place-military-nursing-in-the-limelight
