Corporate partners

ACORN provides funds for research, professional development, publication of Standards for Perioperative Nursing in Australia, education conferences, patient safety resources and educational webinars. 

Corporate partnership can make a difference in the lives of perioperative nurses today and in generations to come. Corporate support helps us to fulfil our vision and purpose by funding continuing education, scholarships and publishing standards for perioperative nursing practice. 

ACORN is a deductible gift recipient (DGR) charity endorsed by the Australian Tax Office. This means that the college can receive tax deductible gifts and contributions. 

Corporate partnership is designed to more closely align the College with the health industry and its health partners who continually support the organisation through their attendance at state and national conferences and the support of perioperative nursing education.
