Our History

Founded by the private hospital sector and healthcare researchers, the Academy has developed courses to provided pathways to the Carers profession since 2005.

The Academy’s industry links ensures that the training, research, and ongoing professional development is relevant and aligned with industry and sector trends and needs.

Our Mission

The Australian Academy of Nursing has dedicated itself to forging bonds between academia, industry, and the community. Our commitment to our students is strengthened by our belief that the Carers profession provides a worthwhile opportunity to care for the vulnerable members of our community.


The Academy integrates teaching with research led by lecturers and trainers who are experienced practitioners in the sector.

The assessment tasks are designed to introduce students to the challenges faced in a modern care environment such as hospitals, aged and child care centres. It’s a holistic multidiscipline approach delivering significantly more than the industry minimum in content, assessment and competencies.

Kaizen Carers Philosophy

The Academy has adopted the Kaizen philosophy of continuous incremental improvements

This achieves personalised training of Carers from diverse backgrounds.  Our campus brings together small, well-coordinated groups of students with overseas and local qualifications, and entry level knowledge. These groups are engaged in a dynamic non-traditional learning environment which integrates classroom teaching, online learning, clinical laboratory sessions, and practical placement in both hospitals and care facilities.

The Academy professional learning and research environment treats all students as equals.

We accept only a limited number of students each intake to ensure students receive the attention and assistance they need to succeed in their studies. All our staff are experienced practitioners in the care community, and our programs are designed according to evidence-based practice.

The Australian Academy of Nursing endeavours to provide the students with facilities and other resources that will assist them in their smooth transition to the Australian education system and Care sector.

The Campus

Practical components of programs are delivered in our purpose-built learning  laboratories. However, students are free to use much of these resources in their own time for study purposes. Resources include:

  • Classrooms with data projection and whiteboards
  • Clinical laboratory with beds, mannequins, technical equipment, and consumables
  • Vocational placement within AAON-approved partners
