There are advantages to joining a professional nursing organisation
As regulated professionals, Australian nurses are expected to adhere to professional codes, guidelines and standards for practice so they can provide safe professional practice. AFCNA is a recognised professional nursing association commenced in 1996 to support the specialty of faith community nursing. AFCNA is a member of the Council of National Nursing and Midwifery Organisations (CoNNMO) in Australia. Membership gives you a voice in the vision and direction of AFCNA and via CoNNMO a voice on health care direction in Australia. Membership demonstrates your commitment to your profession.
As a member you gain access to a network of Christian nurses with mutual professional and faith interests, who are passionate about shaping the future of Australia’s health care from their Christian values. You are eligible to receive mentoring in the FCN role from an experienced FCN who understands your practice context, if you want that support.
AFCNA membership provides you with quality opportunities to keep up to date in the specialty of faith community nursing at reduced prices. AHPRA and the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia require all nurses to complete a minimum number of continuing professional development (CPD) hours directly relevant to their nursing or midwifery context of practice. AFCNA provides continuing education (CE) courses that are contextually relevant, and of an excellent professional standard so you stay up-to-date in your practice. Additionally, from 2017 members have free access to the World Continuing Education Alliance (WCEA) portal where you can access thousands of specific CE activities . WCEA has been endorsed by the International Council of Nursing and AFCNA membership gets you free access!
If you don’t wish to become a member but you do want to stay connected and keep up to date with what’s happening you can subscribe to the mailing list and to receive our complimentary WholeHealth newsletter, occasional updates, and bonus access to some of our resources on the website.
