† Professional Indemnity insurance is now compulsory in accordance with your nursing registration with AHPRA. Members of the ANF in WA are covered by Professional Indemnity Insurance, unless they are working as a self employed nurse or self employed midwife

Please note: Nurses, midwives and carers do not have access to ANF or its legal and industrial services for any incident that occurred before they were financial ANF members or for incidents, issues and matters that arise during any period a member is unfinancial. This allows the ANF to concentrate all its resources on financial ANF members.

Because ANF fees are fully tax deductible, a Registered Nurse or Midwife pays as little as 75 cents a day (60 cents for Enrolled Nurses or Carers) for all these benefits and all this protection!
