About ANMF (SA Branch)

About Us

ANMF (SA Branch) is a powerful professional and industrial organisation representing nurses, midwives and personal care workers across South Australia.

We are committed to be ‘With you at work and in practice’ and that ANMF (SA Branch) is always by our members’ side, no matter the circumstances members and the nursing and midwifery professions face.

We have been the leading voice for nurses, midwives and personal care workers for over a century, working together to negotiate positive outcomes for our members at local, state and federal levels. We also promote and encourage community engagement on the many issues that affect our professions.

Our commitment to the health care sector also extends to professional development, providing face-to-face and online courses to thousands of our members annually.

We also own and operate the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Education Centre (ANMEC), which educates hundreds of students in Certificate and Diploma qualifications in nursing every year.

ANMF (SA Branch) members are from all classifications, sectors and career stages and enjoy a vast range of benefits, savings and resources, including professional Indemnity Insurance, legal and industrial advice and representation and free online Continuing Professional Development tutorials. With your support, we can continue to create a brighter future for the nursing and midwifery professions and the community as a whole.


To create an environment where the ANMF (SA Branch) and the nursing and midwifery professions are valued, respected and have influence in the workplace and in the wider community.


To promote and advance the interests of ANMF (SA Branch), its members, the health and related systems and the professions.


Our values are now strikingly represented in our office at 191 Torrens Road Ridleyton by an incredible piece of artwork ‘snaking’ its way through the foyer. The masterpiece was created by Indigenous artist Jordan Lovegrove and tells the story of our relationship with members and the wider community. The snake represents the ANMF (SA Branch) and depicts seven meeting places that represent our values.
