The Cancer Nurses Society of Australia (CNSA) is a not-for-profit member association established in 1998 for nurses involved in cancer care.

“The CNSA is committed to achieving and promoting excellence in cancer care through the professional contributions of nurses"

To achieve their mission, the CNSA acts as a resource to cancer nurses around Australia and is the link between cancer nurses, the consumers of cancer nursing services, and other health professionals involved in cancer care.

Membership of the Association is open to registered and enrolled nurses, allied health professionals and nursing students maintaining an interest in cancer care and control, who are residents within Australia or New Zealand.

A National Executive Committee, which is comprised of a nationally elected President, Secretary, Treasurer, elected representatives from all states and territories, and an Executive Officer, govern the CNSA.

The CNSA has regional and specialist practice network, standing committees for core areas of activity, as well as special project teams that are set up from time to time to undertake short term projects for CNSA.

A highlight of the CNSA calendar is the Annual Congress. This is a two day scientific meeting where nurses have an opportunity to hear about research and practice issues related to cancer nursing.

The CNSA has approximately 1000 members based in all Australian states and territories.
