The NurseStrong Movement

The Australian College of Nursing (ACN) is leading the way to empower nurses around the country to achieve the health and wellbeing they deserve.


The Australian College of Nursing (ACN) is leading the way to empower nurses around the country to achieve the health and wellbeing they deserve.

Nurses dedicate their lives to caring for others and often neglect looking after themselves in the process.

We know how difficult it is to find the time to exercise, meal prep or even just take a moment to breath when you are doing shift work or working weekends.



That’s why we have created the NurseStrong movement to encourage nurses to improve their physical, mental and emotional strength in a safe and supportive environment.

Hundreds of nurses are tackling the 12-week FHIT by Lauren Hannaford program together from 1 October – 23 December.



We have created a private NurseStrong Facebook Group allowing nurses around the country to seek and share advice as well as motivate and support each other.

Regardless of whether or not you are an ACN member or are participating in the FHIT by Lauren Hannaford program, we encourage you to join the NurseStrong Facebook Group to enhance your health and wellbeing.



We would also love you to share your NurseStrong journey with us by using the hashtags below when you post on social media.
