About Us

ANMF (Vic Branch)

ANMF (Vic Branch) works tirelessly to improve members’ wages and conditions and their ability to provide high quality care to patients, residents and clients.

ANMF (Vic Branch) has a membership of more than 100,000 nurses, midwives, student nurses and midwives, and personal care workers, 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 Lifeblood and Bolton Clarke.

ANMF (Vic Branch) is committed to providing an opportunity for its members to discuss professional issues and undertake research in the pursuit of nursing and midwifery excellence and improved patient outcomes. The Branch offers members several scholarships, research grants and conference sponsorships to promote nursing and midwifery excellence.

Our strong and unified membership has enabled us to make a real difference to nursing and midwifery in Victoria. Nurse/midwife 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 have been achieved for many nurses, midwives and carers because ANMF (Vic Branch) members have worked together to achieve them.

ANMF (Vic Branch) also looks after individual members by providing industrial, professional, occupational health and safety and legal** advice, support and representation as well as a range of exclusive benefits. **Conditions apply.

We welcome nursing and midwifery student members, including RUSONs (registered undergraduate students of nursing) and RUSOMs (registered undergraduate students of midwifery).
