The Australasian Rehabilitation Nurses’ Association
The Australasian Rehabilitation Nurses’ Association (ARNA) began as the Australian Rehabilitation Nurses’ Association in 1991 in the Illawarra District of New South Wales when several Rehabilitation Nurses got together to discuss ways of networking and enhancing the education of nurses in the rehabilitation setting. Since then ARNA has grown to include all the states and territories of Australia and has members in New Zealand and other nations.
ARNA continues to be a conduit for the exchange of information and knowledge for rehabilitation nurses and providing information for educational and professional enhancement. It is an association run by nurses for nurses and also encourages multi and interdisciplinary sharing of information and knowledge.
