The Prostate Cancer Specialist Nursing Service is an existing program delivered by Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) and established through seed funding from the Movember Foundation and later through a Commonwealth Government Grant and support from community initiatives driven by It's a Bloke Thing Foundation, Biggest Ever Blokes Lunches and The Horizon Committee.

The Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurses are currently placed in hospitals in all States and Territories across Metropolitan and Regional Australia. PCFA has now received additional Commonwealth Government funding to enable expansion of this service. The funding enables placement of 14 additional nurses in both hospitals and community settings. These nurses will be employed directly by the host health providers, and will be professionally supported by PCFA.
