Here are some easy steps:

  • if you don’t already have it, download the free Instagram app to your smartphone or ipad and set up your account (it’s fine to use a pseudonym)
  • follow @NSWNMA on Instagram
  • download our blank IND Instagram poster and write your message in texta
  • Here are some suggested messages:

I’m a force for change on International Nurses’ Day!

– Midwives: a force for change to be reckoned with!

I’m a proud nurse unionist who’s a force for change

  • get someone to take a photo of you holding the poster (or take a selfie)
  • post it on Instagram, using the hashtag #nswnmaforce4change and @nswnma
  • email it to us as well:
  • you can also post it on Facebook and/or Twitter if you like.

If you can’t manage the Instagram side of things, still take your photos and email them to us at and we will send it out on Instagram.
