History

The NSW RNIG was set up during the winter of 1994, by Mary Dunford and Neil Heron, as a professional support network for nurses working in respiratory nursing. The first meeting was held in the respiratory department at St George Hospital, with pizza and red wine, and no more than 10 respiratory nurses present. The original objectives were to:-

    • Provide a forum for networking;

    • Encourage the development of a professional role model system;

    • Encourage the development of nurses with an interest in the field of respiratory nursing to network, share knowledge and ideas;

    • Lobby for the development of advanced training courses in respiratory nursing;

    • Be a representative voice influencing the formulation of health management policies;

    • Set standards and promote a code of ethics within the health industry;

    • Enhance the potential for the development of multi centre respiratory nursing research studies.

NSW RNIG became an incorporated association called the Respiratory Nurses Interest Group (NSW) Inc in 2012 and continues to evolve with the original objectives in mind.
