Isabelle Skinner is about to become the boss of every nurse on the planet.

Dr Skinner who works as the senior research fellow at the Mount Isa Centre for Rural and Remote has today been appointed the CEO of the International Council of Nurses.



“It is very exciting for me,’ Dr Skinner said.

Dr Skinner will be packing her bags for Geneva, Switzerland this August to begin her new role.

The registered nurse, turned researcher, began her career as a remote area nurse in Cloncurry.

“I then went onto study midwifery and worked in the Kimberlys for a very long time. It has been a very varied and interesting career,” Dr Skinner said.

“It is possible to do anything from Mount Isa, for the people who have an opportunity to work out here, it is a great experience.

“You get to work with lots of different people and you really establish yourself as someone who can work in a multidisciplinary team,” she said.

“You build a lot of skills out here that you probably wouldn’t at an inner city hospital in Brisbane.”

Dr Skinner is an an experienced leader and innovator in health with 32 years of experience as a nurse.

She is passionate about improving access to specialist health care services for people in remote and rural communities around the world and has worked in remote Australia, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Singapore, Zimbabwe and China.

The health promotion facebook page she edits has nearly half a million followers in 49 countries. She was selected as ICN’s CEO among highly qualified candidates from around the world.

ICN president Annette Kennedy said she was delighted to welcome Dr Skinner as the new head of the council.

“The ICN board and staff look forward to working with her in this new role as CEO, as she continues and advances the tremendous work of Interim CEO Professor Thomas Kearns, leading nurses and the populations they serve to quality health care for all,” she said.

The International Council of Nurses is a federation of more than 130 national nurses associations representing the millions of nurses worldwide.
