When you become a NSWOTA member you automatically get membership with ACORN our national perioperative nursing body, the Australian College of Perioperative Nurses and access to their website. 

While you get immediate access to the NSWOTA 'members only' section of the website, you will NOT get IMMEDIATE access to the ACORN 'members only' section. You will have to wait until the membership data is exported to ACORN at the end of the month, following the Executive Committee's monthly meeting.

ACORN supports its members and perioperative nursing by offering financial support for professional development and acknowledging outstanding contributions to perioperative nursing and the perioperative profession.
