ACORN Education Learning Platform

We know that accessibility to education is a big priority for our ACORN members. This learning platform allows for live interactions and self paced modules and courses. A large amount of consideration and analysis was undertaken to select the most appropriate learning platform that would be able to facilitate ACORN Education in both the short and long term needs of the strategic plan. As the peak perioperative nursing representative body, we wanted to ensure that we were providing high quality education for our members, and the wider perioperative community. We wanted to provide a rigorous, reliable and relevant education suite of CPD modules, short and long courses, and self-paced education programs available to meet your needs.

 

ACORN will be rolling out education programs from novice – through to advanced practice perioperative nursing. We will have a mixture of self-paced learning modules that you will be able to complete when it suits you, and interactive modules that will include a live component of the course or module. We will be rolling out the programs sequentially so to ensure the smooth implementation of each program, rather than a bulk multi-course roll out. It is a very exciting time for ACORN education, and we want to make sure that it is done correctly, effectively, and is user-friendly for our members. These courses will be available on PC or smart device with a range of clinical and non-clinical courses available. There is also a mobile device app to make your learning even more convenient.
