Welcome to the Perioperative Nurses Association of Queensland

The PNAQ was formed in 1972 with only a few members.  We currently have over 850 members who work in perioperative facilities throughout QLD.

Members of PNAQ are automatically given membership to our National body ACORN (Australian College of Operating Room Nurses).


Currently the yearly membership fee is $88 and we strive to keep this as low as possible.


Members enjoy reduced rates at conferences, seminars and educational sessions, and reciprocal membership rates with our other state perioperative associations throughout Australia. 


Each member has their own branch and these branches hold regular meetings and educational sessions, seminars and conferences.  Please check your branch page for further details of these events.


Members are able to apply for funding to assist with the costs of study and attending educational events (conditions apply).  See our Grants & Scholarships page for details.
