The ANMF (SA Branch) is the voice for nurses, midwives and personal care assistants  in advocating progressive positions and responding to issues at the local and federal level.

We continuously work towards the recognition and advancement of the essential role of nurses, midwives and personal care assistants in the provision of health and aged care.

The ANMF SA (Branch) represents the interests of members across a wide range of issues that impact the nursing and midwifery professions and subsequently the health and wellbeing of the community.

On behalf of members, we coordinate the development of ANMF (SA Branch) policies, position statements, guidelines, reports, issues papers and professional practice standards. These publications are developed in consultation with members and are primarily to assist ANMF (SA Branch) members in their day to day nursing and midwifery practice; whilst also articulating the ANMF (SA Branch) view to local and federal government, other health professionals and the community.

The ANMF (SA Branch) is also a member of the ANF Federal Professional Advisory Committee and through this collaboration informs the development of ANF Federal Policy and responds to key issues in the nursing, midwifery and personal care assistants health care agenda.

By using all these mechanisms, we act as a strong voice in advocating progressive positions and responding to issues at the local and federal agenda for debate, consensus and resolution.
