With the ANMF’s Biennial National Conference upon us final preperations have commenced.
After ANMF members were asked to complete an ANMJ communication survey last month, the results are finally in, and from what you have told us, it’s time to change how we deliver nursing and midwifery news and information.
Depending in which state or territory you live in the chances are you have met job reps, union delegates, worksite representatives or job delegates. Despite varying titles, the role of an ANMF job rep (however titled) is clear cut – to represent nurses and midwives in the workplace and drive change to improve conditions. Robert Fedele takes a look at what is involved in the position and how it can empower volunteers both personally and professionally.
One of the benefits of being a nurse or a midwife is the ability to work almost anywhere in the world. The flexibility that nursing or midwifery brings also allows the opportunity to travel to a multitude of destinations while also making a living. This month the ANMJ features two of the most popular destinations for Australian nurses and midwives to work and live in. Thinking of working overseas?
