100 Years Strong: The Australian Nursing & Midwifery Federation celebrates

Nurses outside Sydney Hospital

Our story is one of purpose and passion, people and power. It’s a story of fighting for workers and their rights, and of protecting and promoting our members, our professions, and our communities. As we reflect on the past century, we honour the resilience and dedication that have defined our journey.

For the past century, the ANMF has been a steadfast advocate for the rights and wellbeing of nurses, midwives, and the communities they serve. From striving for fair wages and better working conditions to promoting safer healthcare practices and improved patient care, the ANMF has been a catalyst for positive change.

In tribute to the ANMF, the ANMJ is gearing up to celebrate with a series of special articles that will highlight some of the incredible ANMF victories, from its early days to the present. We’ll also be active on our social media channels, encouraging you to share your stories with the hashtag #OurStoryIsYourStory.

Among the celebratory activities, a short documentary showcasing the ANMF’s collective strength and milestone wins is set to premiere in October. To coincide with this event, the ANMJ will release a centennial keepsake edition. This special edition will spotlight the ANMF, nurses, and midwives as a united, powerful collective that has been central to shaping the union’s successes and driving significant advancements in their professions.

Throughout its history, the ANMF has shown remarkable resilience and adaptability in the face of challenges. Looking ahead, the ANMF remains dedicated to advancing the nursing and midwifery professions. As we honour the achievements of the past 100 years, we also look forward with enthusiasm. The future holds limitless opportunities, and with the ongoing commitment and passion of nurses, midwives, carers, and the ANMF, the outlook for healthcare in Australia is promising.

Happy 100th anniversary, ANMF!
