australian-college-of-critical-care-nursesThe Australian College of Critical Care Nurses (ACCCN) is the professional organisation representing registered nurses practising or interested in critical care in Australia. Our members are made up of clinical nurses, nurse educators, nurse managers, academics and nurse researchers who work in adult and paediatric critical care settings that include intensive care units, emergency departments, coronary care units, cardiothoracic units and high dependency units.
Our 2500 members are based in all Australian states and territories. We are made up of 6 state branches in NSW, QLD, SA, Tas, Vic and WA. We also have a number of international members from various countries.
ACCCN aims to improve the care and outcomes of critically ill patients and their families; to provide and/or support education initiatives that improve the knowledge, skills and competency of critical care nurses; to initiate and support relevant nursing research and evidence based practice; to enhance the professional image of critical care nurses; to communicate locally, nationally and internationally with political, nursing, medical and professional groups on issues related to critical care; to foster communication and cooperation between critical care nurses through support and promotion of the activities of the branches of ACCCN; and to provide leadership, representation and support for critical care nurses.
The constitution of ACCCN is a very comprehensive document which underpins the way our organisation is governed, the responsibilities of the board, conduct of the state branches and member's processes.
