Welcome to the ANZONA web site.

ANZONA is an international organisation that was set up by local Orthopaedic Nursing associations throughout New Zealand and Australia.

To become a member, join your local association and you will automatically become a member of ANZONA.

ANZONA hosts regular conferences and serves as a great way for Orthopaedic nurses throughout Australia and New Zealand to learn about the latest developments in Orthopaedics and as an excellent way to network with other health professionals.

New dates: Wednesday 14th to Friday 16th September 2022

Hilton Adelaide Hotel, South Australia

SAON, on behalf of the ANZONA committee, wishes to announce a change of date for the upcoming ANZONA conference. It is important to us to be able to include all our chapters in the conference and give everyone an opportunity to attend. However with the rapidly changing COViD-19 situation in several states we recognise that uncertainty surrounding border closures, the continuing possibility of lockdowns, and the closed travel bubble between Australia and New Zealand has made it very difficult for people to plan ahead.

By holding off until 2022 we hope to be able to maximise attendance and we are committed to offering a face to face experience as the benefit of networking and of sharing knowledge is just so valuable. We know that we need to be flexible and agile enough to offer a rich, COViD safe conference experience. 

The safety of our members & community is of upmost importance. We acknowledge the uncertainty going forward but we are resilient and are continuing to plan a great conference for you in a vaccinated, post winter environment. Watch this space for updates!

The organising committee are looking forward to being able to host everyone in Adelaide in 2022.

ANZONA Competency Framework

ANZONA is proud to have launched the Australian and New Zealand Speciality Nurse Competency Framework at ANZONA 2017. The framework is the first part of a two stage document that seeks to provide a framework to describe and support orthopaedic nursing practice. Part two is currently in development and will focus on clinical elements of practice with identification of specific skills and knowledge required to deliver specialist care to orthopaedic patients.
