Get involved to help make a real difference to the future of our professions.

Invest in Us! Invest in Ratios

Public health system nurses and midwives in New South Wales are calling for justified and necessary improvements to help rebuild our public health services. We are demanding a 15% pay increase, plus superannuation, for all nurses and midwives working in the public sector from 1 July 2024.

NSW nurses and midwives are claiming a rate that recognises their commitement, and is competitive with other states

Fix aged care

The Association represents more than 10,400 workers employed in the residential aged care sector.

It is this collective strength that enables your union to fight for better pay and conditions for aged care workers. Together with members, we have secured some massive wins for the sector through persistent campaigning for better pay and conditions.

Safe staffing for Country NSW

Our postcode shouldn’t define the health care our community receives.

We need safe staffing and safe working conditions in regional and rural hospitals, including: a minimum of 3 nurses on all shifts, including 2 registered nurses; and staffing enhancements accessible when there are no visiting medical officers available and where hospitals are reliant on virtual medical officer coverage.

Racism. It stops with Me

Workers from any background can experience racial discrimination.

The NSW Nurses and Midwives’ Association opposes any act of racial discrimination perpetrated against individuals directly, or indirectly as an outcome of organisational culture and practices. If you’re experiencing any form of racism at work, contact us for support.

Climate Change and the Health System

Climate change as a result of global warming will have major consequences for our already overloaded health system and for nurses and nursing. Climate change is giving rise to fundamental health issues and the consequences of inaction will be catastrophic. It’s important that nurses understand this issue and contribute to finding a solution.
