Network with fellow perioperative professionals


The Australian College of Perioperative Nurses (ACORN) hosts a range of conferences, events and webinars focused on Perioperative nursing practice, leadership, and clinical education.

By participating in an ACORN event, perioperative nurses and leaders are empowered to expand their skills, network with other perioperative professionals and be involved in influencing and shaping the profession and its applied practice.

Our signature event is the biennial ACORN Conference, bringing together nurses, students, and other health professionals both nationally and internationally. On alternative years we host the Perioperative Leadership Summit (PLS) for middle and senior management.

The ACORN events calendar lists perioperative nursing conferences, events and activities.
