Tanya Vogt to helm ANMAC

The Australian Nursing & Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC) board has announced that Tanya Vogt will be the organisation’s new CEO, commencing 26 February 2024.

Vogt has experience as a registered nurse combined with a law background, and her time as an executive at the regulator Ahpra positions her uniquely for the role of CEO, ANMAC said.

“I am delighted to be appointed CEO and believe we have a great opportunity to build upon the strong ANMAC platform to continue to support our professions, people, communities and partners,” Vogt said.

“As a proud nurse, I will be helping to ensure the nursing and midwifery professions receive only the best quality education, and support the growth of the nursing and midwifery professions to meet the healthcare needs of the Australian public.”

The board acknowledged the work of interim CEO Greg Cantwell during this time, noting that he had led ANMAC through its strategic development to ensure all business offerings were soundly positioned for the challenging Australian health landscape. Cantwell will return to his position of Deputy CEO when Vogt commences her role.

Adjunct Professor Kylie Ward FACN, Chair ANMAC, said the appointment of Vogt came at a critical time for the industry, with ANMAC having secured the contract to continue to be the accreditation authority for the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia, while Ahpra continues to regulate and ensure high-quality nursing and midwifery education.

“Now is the time for the mighty nursing and midwifery professions to lead the reform for our sector and seize opportunities both created and found,” Ward said.

“With accreditation and skills migration services, ANMAC has significant roles to play nationally and internationally. Tanya commences her CEO role with a committed and expert team of executives and staff to support her in achieving our strategic directions.”
