Tasmanian Operating Room Nurses (TORN) was formed in 1973 on the initiative of Sister Monica Stone (Toby). TORN became a founding member of ACORN and hosted the ACORN national conference in 1990. In 2016, TORN became ACORN Tasmania and continues to implement its founders' vision through study days and financial assistance for members.
