History

The New South Wales Nurses’ Association (NSWNA) was formed in 1931 and was registered as a trade union in New South Wales on 20 November 1945. By this time it had amalgamated with the Trained Mental Nurses' Association (May, 1945). It was the registered union for all nurses in New South Wales in both public and private sectors. The membership of the Association comprised all those who perform nursing work, including Assistants in Nursing, Enrolled Nurses and Registered Nurses at all levels, including management and education. With the exception of Assistants in Nursing, the members of the NSWNA were also members of the Australian Nursing Federation (ANF), a federally registered industrial organisation, and formed the NSW Branch of the ANF. At the Association's 2012 Annual Conference the name of the organisation was changed to the New South Wales Nurses and Midwives' Association.
