The College has produced Australian Standards for Neonatal Nurses. The 3rd edition was revised in 2012. The standards should be utilised for the advancement of clinical practice based assessment, or as a self reflective tool for all levels of neonatal nurses in the clinical practice, or educational practice setting. The standards encourage the neonatal nurse to incorporate the standards into their nursing care, thereby enhancing nursing care to infants and their families.
ACNN currently has four Special Interest Groups (SIGs): Education, Low Resource Countries, Research and Neonatal Nurse Practitioner. Each SIG organisers at least one annual workshop or meeting. Such SIG workshops are open to all ACNN members. Members of ACNN may nominate to be a member of any or all SIGs groups.
