About Nurses Collective

Welcome to Nurses Collective, Australia’s vibrant and free online hub dedicated to fostering a dynamic and supportive nursing community. Founded by Aussie RN Jackson Heilberg, a passionate nurse with a vision, Nurses Collective emerged to bridge the gaps and connect the diverse world of nursing.


Our mission is simple yet powerful: to strengthen the Australian nursing profession by providing a central platform for students, nurses and professional associations to coexist, learn, share, and thrive. Jackson is also the Founder of the blog The Nurse Break.

Our Vision and Mission

At Nurses Collective, we envision a united and empowered nursing community. Our mission is to create a platform that connects nurses from all specialties, students, nursing societies, and professional organisations.

We aim to provide a space where everyone, from early career to experienced nurses, can access resources, share knowledge, and foster a sense of belonging within the nursing world.

Our Unique Features (besides being free…)
  • Communities of Interest (COIs): Whether you’re a passionate paediatric nurse, an ICU/ED expert, or focused on mental health, we’ve got you covered. Our dedicated COIs cater to all clinical specialties.
  • Professional Forums: Engage in discussions, share insights, and seek guidance within our moderated forums. We encourage respectful, professional discourse and learning.
  • Inclusive for All: Nurses Collective welcomes everyone. Our goal is to provide accessible knowledge to anyone passionate about nursing.
  • Connecting Students: Collaborating with university student societies like ACU and Southern Cross University, we facilitate private groups and forums for students.
  • Supporting Associations: We work in collaboration with professional associations, such as the Australian College of Nurse Practitioners (ACNP), to offer their members private groups and forums, enhancing their professional experience.
  • Abundant Resources: From clinical guides to mental health materials, free CPD directory, and much more, our platform is a one-stop resource center, created through collaboration with major healthcare organisations.

Our Commitment

Nurses Collective is built on the values of transparency, professionalism, and community. We are committed to providing a safe, respectful, and inclusive space where every nurse and student can learn, grow, and connect.
