• About the Association

The New South Wales Nurses and Midwives’ Association (NSWNMA) is the registered union for all nurses and midwives in New South Wales. The Association represents the industrial interests of nurses and midwives employed under all awards and agreements registered in this state in both the public, private and aged care sectors. Our role is to protect the interests of nurses, midwives and the nursing and midwifery profession.

The Association also represents and provides for the professional, educational and industrial welfare of nurses and midwives in government and non-government forums at state, national and international level.

The NSWNMA has approximately 59,000 members and is affiliated to Unions NSW and the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU). The Association also signed a harmonisation Agreement in 1988 with the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (ANMF) and NSWNMA members are deemed to be members of the New South Wales Branch of the ANMF.
