Launch of CATSINaM’s Online Community ‘Back to the Fire’
Launch of ‘Back to the Fire’ (formerly CATSINaM Connect)
A Message from CATSINaM CEO Professor Roianne West
I am excited to announce the launch of our community platform ‘Back to the Fire’. This is a place to connect, network,
encourage and empower each other to continue our journeys in nursing and/or Midwifery in a culturally safe and private forum. Connect, Network, Encourage and Empower were key elements that members sought from CATSINaM. We have listened and have created this community platform which meets all those elements and also ensure we realise our vision “Unity and Strength Through Caring”
Over the coming months we will develop a range of smaller communities that encapsulates the cultural, professional, personal interest of our members.
Over the last few weeks 30 CATSINaM members volunteered their time to help us test the site and develop content. We look forward to your feedback and suggestions on how we can further improve your ‘Back to the Fire’ Online Community.

Nursing Now Finale Highlights
Nursing Now was a three-year global awareness campaign which, in collaboration with the World Health Organization and the International Council of Nurses, aimed to raise the status and profile of nursing around the world. The initiative, which has been patroned by Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, worked to empower nurses to take their place at the heart of tackling 21st Century health challenges. ACN is proud to have coordinated the Nursing Now Australia campaign. Join us for a look back at how we came together to support and make the Nursing Now campaign a success.
