Will I be covered with Professional Indemnity Insurance?
YES! NPAQ membership provides up to $10 million professional indemnity cover for nurses (with special conditions for midwives), Allied Health (see policy for a comprehensive list of professions) and support staff. Self-employed nurses require separate cover, we can point you in the right direction.
Will I receive legal advice and protection?
YES! NPAQ membership provides comprehensive support and protection, backed by expert resources. We guarantee a resolution for our members.
Do you support party political campaigns or fighting funds?

What if I need help with payroll disputes or enterprise bargaining?
OF COURSE! NPAQ will investigate any work-related systems, procedures or services which impact our members. This includes negotiating your enterprise agreement.
Will NPAQ support my continuing professional development (CPD)?
YES! We recommend our nurses access the Nurses for Nurses network on-line training system. ***
What if I have an issue with another NPAQ member, will you help?
ABSOLUTELY! Representation is provided to both parties for an internal facilitation initially and if necessary the matter is referred to independent third parties.
I’m not a nurse. Can I still join NPAQ?
YES! Full NPAQ membership is for nurses. Allied Health Professionals and all other support staff are welcomed as affiliates.
Is membership tax deductible?
YES! Tax invoice/Statement is emailed after 30 June.
