The Australian College of Children and Young People’s Nurses (ACCYPN) is a national organisation which was formally established in 2008. Originally, a national organisation known as the Australian Confederation of Paediatric Nurses (ACPN) existed to support smaller state-based counterparts, and was represented by members from each association.
Since becoming a national organisation, the ACCYPN has been able to consolidate its place in the health care sector and become a well-established voice for professional issues related to children and young people’s health and nursing.
The ACCYPN represents nurses involved in all facets of children and young people’s nursing, across multiple settings. As a national organisation, the ACCYPN is recognised as a peak professional body and has been able to share its expertise and help influence policy development in this important professional area. The ACCYPN advocates for improvements in health care for Australian children, young people and families and represents the nurses who care for them.
Currently, the ACCYPN is preparing for its inaugural conference in 2011 in Sydney, which it hopes will help foster a new sense of enthusiasm for children and young people’s nursing and encourage networking and professional development.
The ACCYPN recently joined RCNA as a corporate partner, and is looking forward to the professional growth this affiliation will nurture, as well as the member benefits it will bring for ACCYPN staff.
