As an NPAQ member, we have your registration requirements covered…
Professional Indemnity Insurance: As an NPAQ member you can be assured that you are covered and your nurse registration is protected – no excess, no waiting periods. Our policy covers you throughout Australia (great for the remote & agency employees) and in fact throughout the world excluding Canada and the US (our members who do volunteer work overseas appreciate this). Good Samaritan acts are covered by the Civil Liability Act 2003 (Qld) of course, however if there is ever an issue when you have helped a member of the public outside of the workplace, you can rely on the NPAQ team to assist you.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD): If you have not yet fulfilled your annual CPD hours requirement, head to the Nurses for Nurses online CPD site. For members who have subscribed there are 100’s of sessions to choose from. There are also free sessions available to non-members – might be just what you need to get you the additional points to meet your requirement https://www.nursesfornurses.com.au/
Professional protection: We are expecting a flood of “cultural safety” complaints as a result of the new Code of Conduct. We already have our first. So if you are being audited or asked by AHPRA to respond to an allegation or question we are a phone call or email away. We provide timely expert advice and assistance throughout the process.
Membership support: We provide the full range of workplace related support, whether it is help with a workcover claim, understanding your rights, or your involvement in a conflict or incident. We may provide help over the phone, email you the information you need, coach you through a process, be dialled in or beside you at a meeting in your workplace or have legal team represent you in more serious matters.
Peace of mind: The NPAQ support and industrial team care for you while you are caring for others.
Make sure your colleagues are covered too!
As we know all too well, mistakes and incidents can happen any time. Ask your colleagues if they are also NPAQ members. They can join right here or call 1300 131 643. And remember you will get one month’s membership fee refunded as a referral gift – and so will they!
