About the ANMF

Welcome to the Nursing and Midwifery Family

The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation is the union for registered nurses, enrolled nurses, midwives, and assistants in nursing doing nursing work in every state and territory throughout Australia.

When you join one of our branches, you are joining the largest union in Australia with over 249,000 members.

We Stand up for all Australians

Universal healthcare and high quality patient care is central to what we do as nurses, midwives and assistants in nursing. Current threats to Medicare and proposed co-payments for healthcare are a great concern to the ANMF. We will fight to ensure that Medicare remains free for all Australians, and that politicians and health bureaucrats understand that more funding for healthcare, not less, should be a priority.
