Welcome to CATSINaM. We are the peak body representing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nurses and midwives across Australia, but we are also Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples before we are nurses. This means we are on a lifelong journey together to fulfill our cultural obligations and commitments to our communities, families and ourselves. We are also experts in our own health, and as such, we need to work together to make sure we determine our own future and create positive change for our Peoples when accessing health services. We are fortunate to have a talented and committed Board of Directors, and dedicated staff who work tirelessly to make sure your voice is heard and your aspirations are met – but we also need your support. There is strength in numbers, and every member brings us closer to our aim of increasing the recruitment and retention of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples into nursing and midwifery across Australia.
