National Nursing Workforce Strategy Steering Committee

The Strategy Steering Committee (SSC) oversees the development of the National Nursing Workforce Strategy (Strategy).

Role

The Strategy Steering Committee (SSC) will guide the development of the National Nursing Workforce Strategy, so it meets the needs of:

  • the community
  • the profession
  • service delivery providers.

Members

The SSC includes senior officers from all jurisdictions who:

  • have knowledge of nursing workforce issues
  • can share workforce information and data
  • have authority to make decisions about their jurisdiction’s requirements and commitments.

The SSC also includes several Specialists with expertise outside of nursing who can bring a different perspective to help to shape the strategy.

The Commonwealth and Victorian Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officers (CNMO) will co-chair the SSC.
