Better service, less fees

The Nurses' Professional Association of Queensland is an employee union which fights to protect you, not promote a political party. Run by practising nurses for nurses. Every membership dollar supports you, your workplace issues, provides professional indemnity insurance and legal backup for you. You get a better service for half the price. 



NPAQ is providing support to all nurses, midwives and aged care workers who are facing losing their jobs due to the mandate for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Please consider donating to our fighting fund for nurses today! Every dollar donated goes towards the fight for nurses' jobs and patient safety.
