Biographical history

The Australian Nursing Federation is the union for registered nurses, enrolled nurses, midwives, and assistants in nursing doing nursing work throughout Australia. In 1953 the Australian Nursing Federation/Employees Section was formed from the amalgamation of the Australian United Nurses' Assocation and the Royal Victorian College of Nurses Employees' Association. Around 1971 the organisation began to go by the name of the Royal Australian Nursing Federation and by the name of the Australian Nursing Federation from 1988. Nurses join the ANF branch in the state or territory where they work: ANF Australian Capital Territory Branch; NSW Nurses' Association (ANF NSW Branch); ANF Northern Territory Branch; Queensland Nurses' Union (ANF QLD Branch); ANMF South Australian Branch; ANF Tasmanian Branch; ANF Victorian Branch; ANF Western Australian Branch.
