Why should I register?

The aim of these sessions is to provide you with the tools required to advocate for your colleagues in the workplace. You will feel confident, knowledgeable and like a leader in your role while also educating and unifying your workplace. Collectively, you strengthen the rights, working conditions, and wages of nurses, midwives and care workers in all areas of healthcare across the state. If you are a new Rep looking for advice, an experienced Rep seeking a refresher, or an active Rep looking to kick it up a notch, you will find the session that is right for you.

How do I become a Rep?

If these training sessions look like your kind of thing but you are not a Rep yet, we would love to hear from you. Download or request a Rep nomination form via the contact page and get the process underway.
