What is happening at ARNA 


2015 looks like a very positive year for the Australasian Rehabilitation Nurses’ Association (ARNA).  The National Committee have set up the New Strategic Plan for 2105 – 2018 and as a result, their Action Plan is underway.  Under the Strategic Plan our VISION is to see Rehabilitation as an Integral Part of Every Nurse’s Practice and our MISSION is to Support the development and sharing of nursing’s body of rehabilitation knowledge, skills and attitudes for the wellbeing of individuals and communities.

The year has started off with a great response from both members and non-members to attend Study Days in both Queensland and Victoria.  With positive feedback from all and a great attendance of trade displays and sponsors, we wish to extend a thank you to all for your continuing support.

Additional events listed for the year are:
