Free Open Access

The Nurse Break aims to remain a Free Open Access Nursing website for Australian students, nurses and other health professionals. We have been fortunate to have the support of well known leading nursing organisations across Australia! We have also been named #30 out of the top 70 Nursing Blogs Worldwide in 2021 by Feedspot.

We are not driven by a desire to make profit, rather a passion for advancing the nursing profession by highlighting the amazing careers and diversity that nurses engage in. There are a multitude of ways to collaborate with us so use the contact us page to begin the discussion! We can also provide a ‘Media Kit’ on request for enquiries regarding advertising and sponsorship.

So if you’re a business, startup, education provider, individual, health service, union, nursing ‘body’ or something else – please reach out to us via the contact form so we can discuss further. Please contact us here
