ANMF Membership strength in numbers

Membership benefits

The greatest benefit of ANMF membership is enjoying the collective ‘strength in numbers’ of the membership when negotiating industrial entitlements and workplace terms and conditions.

When you become an ANMF member you will join over 76,000 Victorian nurses, midwives and carers employed in a range of health services, including hospitals, aged care, community health, mental health, maternal and child health, medical clinics, prisons, the Australian Red Cross Blood Service and the Royal District Nursing Service.

Our strong and unified membership has enabled us to make a real difference to nursing and midwifery in Victoria. Nurse/midwife to patient ratios, qualification allowances, ADOs, pay rises, professional development leave, study leave, maternity leave, no-lifting policies, improved occupational health and safety standards and night duty allowances are just some of the conditions that we have achieved together. 

Major benefits

Your ANMF membership will provide you with access to industrial, professional and legal representation** and access to quality advice and assistance when you have a problem at work or have a question about your workplace entitlements and conditions.

ANMF members can call our Infoline help desk service which assists by answering your questions regarding pay rates and/or workplace entitlements and have access to members only information online. 

All financial ANMF (Vic Branch) members receive professional indemnity insurance*, including $10 million protection for a negligent act and coverage for legal expenses, and have access to a range of legal services provided by Ryan Carlisle Thomas**. 

Members have access to quality continued professional development (CPD) through discounts on ANMF (Vic Branch) accredited course, seminars and workshop, and conferences.  Full financial members also receive $400 annual credit for online CPD, with students and associate members receiving $80 credit.


*Professional indemnity insurance is unavailable for nurses working as midwives in independent practice.

** Legal services are subject to conditions which are available on request from the Branch Office. 

Additional benefits

Further member benefits include access to the ANMF library and academic resources, ANMF publications, discounted nursing equipment, merchandise and movie tickets and the opportunity to apply for ANMF scholarship, research grants and sponsorship. New ANMF members are also automatically subscribed to The New Daily (members are able to unsubscribe at any time).   


Don’t wait until it’s too late to join

The ANMF (Vic Branch) will only be able to assist you with professional and legal representation if you are a member at the time an incident occurs. Don’t wait at until you have a problem at work to join!
