New website delivers more

The Association has revamped its website, members now have access to more information and more services, available in a more accessible format.

An online flipbook of every issue of The Lamp since 2005 is a key addition to the Association’s new website ( Editorials by General Secretary Brett Holmes, providing analysis of the issues and challenges facing the Association, are also available separately.

There is plenty of other news that is immediate and relevant, some written specifically for the web as well as all the Association’s media releases, our Twitter feed and links to our social media.

For those who prefer their news and information broadcast rather than in print there is a multimedia section that covers all the key issues and NSWNMA events.

There is a new industrial section where you will find all the relevant awards for nurses and midwives working in the public health system, private hospitals and aged care. Previously housed on the members’ only section, they are now available on our public site. Members can still obtain expert advice by speaking to a union representative at their workplace or by calling the Association on 1300 367 962 (non metro) or 8595 1234 (metro).

The website’s industrial section also contains comprehensive information about Occupational Health and Safety and workers’ compensation and you can now ask Assistant General Secretary Judith Kiejda online about your rights at work.

Our education and library services are easily accessible through the site and you can get a good feel for the breadth of journals, books and courses that are available to members.

Nurses and midwives who wish to join the Association, or current members who wish to pay their fees online, can still do so via the new site.

Brett Holmes says the new website is part of the Association’s commitment to keeping members well informed and up to date about the issues and actions that impact their workplaces.

“We are committed to improving the experience members have with their union by adding to and improving our online resources. Members frequently tell us that communication is important and that they value the information we provide. So we have put effort into developing our online and social media channels and complementing our print publications with more multimedia,” he said.
