Our campaigns 

The QNMU advocates for the interests of nurses and midwives through our various campaigns. 

Year of the Nurse and the Midwife

Coinciding with the 200th birthday of the founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale, the World Health Organisation’s International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife puts us front and centre in 2020.

Ratios for Aged Care

The QNMU is also part of a national campaign to introduce legislated ratios in Australia’s aged care facilities. 

Bushfires information

These unprecedented bushfires are devastating on so many levels – but as is the case when natural disasters strike, Australians are looking for ways to make a meaningful difference.


In August 2018, Queensland Health nurses and midwives voted up their three-year EB10 agreement.

Thanks to our Frontline Heroes

In recognition of their fantastic work in such unprecedented times, we’re inviting the community to thank our members by sending them messages of appreciation and support.

Ratios Save Lives

Thanks to campaigning by the QNMU, Queensland is only one of four jurisdictions in the world to have minimum nurse-to-patient ratios.

Count the Babies

We're stepping up our campaign around safe workloads in midwifery with a focus on counting babies in workloads in postnatal inpatient units.
