The ANMF has over 259,000 members working across Australia in cities, rural, regional and remote locations and in every area of health, health prevention and aged care. There is a total of 364,632 nurses and midwives in Australia registered to practice who contribute directly to all areas of Australia's health and aged care.
All Australians must have access to safe, quality health and aged care. To achieve this, it is important that Australia continues to have a robust, well-educated and highly experienced nursing and midwifery workforce. Ensuring that every nurse, midwife and assistant in nursing receives pay and conditions reflective of their extensive level of skill and education is a priority for the ANMF
The ANMF campaigns to raise political awareness, and political action if necessary, among its members and the community in the pursuit of improved public policy on health, aged care, education, employment, industrial relations and all areas of social justice.
Australia's health and aged care systems and its nursing and midwifery workforce face many challenges. The ANMF is working with nurses, midwives and assistants in nursing, governments, community and consumer groups, health and aged care providers and other health care professionals to progress solutions and build a sustainable health workforce for the future good health of Australia.
The ANMF Federal Office
The ANMF Federal Office has locations in Melbourne and Canberra. The Federal Office develops policy and represents ANMF members at a national level in the areas of health, aged care, education, the nursing and midwifery workforce, industrial relations and social justice.
Annie Butler, Federal Secretary of the ANMF and Lori-Anne Sharp, Assistant Federal Secretary, co-ordinate the national activities of the Federation. Branch Secretaries manage the activities of the state and territory branches of the ANMF.
The governing bodies of the Union are the Federal Council and Federal Executive. National committees cover industrial and professional issues, occupational health and safety and aged care.
The ANMF Federal Office publishes two nursing journals:
* The Australian Nursing & Midwifery Journal (ANMJ) published monthly consists of clinical articles, a monthly feature and the latest union, nursing and midwifery news - https://anmf.org.au/anmj-landing
* The Australian Journal of Advanced Nursing (AJAN), published quarterly, is a peer reviewed research journal, available at http://www.ajan.com.au
(27) NHWDS 2016 Fact sheet - http://data.hwa.gov.aU/publications.html#nrmw
ANMF membership is the most effective way for nurses, midwives and assistants in nursing to ensure that fair working conditions and rates of pay are negotiated for the entire nursing and midwifery workforce. Fair wages and working conditions help to retain nurses, midwives and assistants in nursing in the workforce, thereby improving Australia's health and aged care system. The ANMF provides a range of services to members through its state and territory branches.
* information about wages and conditions of employment
* industrial representation
* professional indemnity insurance
* legal representation
* negotiation of awards and agreements
* resolution of workplace disputes
* information and representation on workplace issues such as occupational health and safety
* education services
