ANMF members receive expert professional and industrial advice and assistance on work related matters. These include conditions of employment, wages, and workplace health and safety. Services also include face-to-face representations and case management.
ANMF membership includes Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) and legal referral. PII protects you against claims for loss, injury or damage to a third party arising from an act, error or omission in performing your professional services. It is mandatory for nurses and midwives to have PII, however, it is also recommended for anyone who provides direct care.
The collective strength and power of our members enables ANMF to strongly negotiate for and with our members to promote, improve and protect your working conditions. Enterprise Agreements are negotiated in your workplace to agree on the terms, wages and conditions that you are entitled to.
As a member, you can read our online publications including Infusion and ANMJ, get in touch with the ANMF Member Support Team, check-out our extensive member extras, access exclusive industry health insurance, and save with discounted CPD and learning opportunities.
The ANMF along with our Health Education and Research Centre (HERC) provide nurses, midwives and care workers with access to quality education and continuing professional development both online and face to face via workshops and conferences.

A notice delivered to the Branch Secretary, or Membership Officer shall be taken to have been received by the Branch when it was delivered.
Refunds of Membership fees already Paid
Where a member has paid membership fees that extend after the two-week resignation notice period, this total will be repaid to the member.
Where a member believes that they have a case to request that paid membership fees to be returned, without resignation notice, they may do so by writing directly to the Branch Secretary or Membership Officer. It is at the Branch Secretary’s discretion as to whether paid membership fees without resignation notice will be returned to the member.
The following circumstances for refund will not be refused by the Branch Secretary. a) Where a member can provide evidence that a previous resignation was forwarded to the appropriate person in the branch but was not processed and/or received. b) Where a member can provide evidence that they transferred to another interstate branch of the ANMF, but ANMF Tasmania fees were not ceased.
Refunds will be issued via the payment method in which membership fees were originally paid. In the case that a member has paid via payroll deduction the refund will be paid as a direct debit into their nominated bank account.
