How will we benefit you?
Support when you need it: NPAQ provides professional indemnity insurance, along with personalised advice and legal assistance, to quickly resolve any workplace issues.
Lower fees without the politics: Not one cent of your hard-earned membership money goes to any political party or cause. 100% goes to providing protection and advancement to you and your profession.
improved working conditions: NPAQ helps and advises working nurses to openly negotiate enterprise agreements, with a focus on practical outcomes in each workplace.
Putting Nurses' interests first: Focusing on patient care – not on paperwork. By reducing administration, we aim to let nurses ‘nurse again’.
Any savings should be passed on as pay rises to nurses not funding administration/HR.
A choice in representation: Only nurses – not the government nor your employer – should choose who represents and protects nurses.
This means all NPAQ nurses – not union officials – have a real say in the running of the health system.
Here's what our members are saying:
Darren was very supportive and provided me with appropriate advice to navigate my employment contract from a non-adversity approach. This enabled me to approach my employer while staying safe from possible repercussions as it was managed in a delicate manner. Without Darren’s support and advice I wouldn’t have been able to manage the matter or achieve an outcome that was in my favour.
Please seriously consider this service. I have called upon them twice in recent years and have found the advice & support above reproach. This team is caring, understanding and professional in dealing with the concerns I submitted to them until each case was resolved to my utmost satisfaction. God Bless you all.
Thank you for the support NPAQ. I have been a nurse and union member for over 20 years and have never had such support. The response to my request for representation was great. Right from the beginning, Ben was supportive. He called me multiple times and emailed me relevant information and called after the meeting I had to attend. He ensured I was okay and needed anything, offered to go through mock scenarios if I needed too, and did everything he could to alleviate my anxiety. My meeting went smoothly with a good outcome. Thank you Ben...you're a legend!
I was feeling vulnerable but at each step Emilie was there when I made contact with her. Prior to the meeting she was very reassuring and supportive. I definitely was not my normal self and her reassurances, kindness and professionalism were outstanding. The notes on what to do and what not to do we’re an excellent guideline. In closing I have found the support of all involved in NPAQ kind and appropriately reassuring. Many thanks.
I would like to express my deep gratitude to Tracy Tully for the support she has given me during a difficult and sensitive experience. The non-judgemental, professional, emotional support and guidance was more than I expected. Tracy went above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks to Tracy I received a great outcome and feel I can move forward in my career with greater confidence and knowledge. It is wonderful to have the knowledge as a professional that I am supported and cared for by NPAQ. Thank you so very much.
