PI Coverage Performance Management Policy  Review Shift Changes Payroll/Allowances Workcover/AHPRA Submission Workplace Relationships
Q What's different about NPAQ? A We are run by nurses, not union officials so there's no party politics. Issues are resolved effectively and we are half the price. Q Will I automatically get Professional Indemnity Insurance with my membership? A Yes.  Up to $10 million cover for private or public employee nurses (special conditions for midwives). Self-employed nurses need separate cover. Q Is legal advice and protection provided in my membership? A Yes.  The Association is backed by the resources of Sajen Legal.  This means real support when you need it. Q Does any money go to support party political campaigns or fighting funds? A No.  This is why our membership fees are so low. Q Will NPAQ handle major payroll disputes, problems and enterprise bargaining? A Yes. We will investigate any work related systems, procedures or services which impact our members including negotiating your EB.  We guarantee a resolution for our members. Q Does NPAQ Support CPD needs of nurses? A Yes.  We recommend and provide access to the "Nurses for Nurses" network online training system.  CPD is an extra $8 per month. Q  How do you handle workplace issues between two members? A Both will be represented by independent third parties. Q Can non-nursing staff join the Association? A Full membership is only for nurses and Allied Health Professionals.  Other support employees may join as affiliates. Q Is membership tax deductible? A Yes

We are making sure that:

You get more patient time and less computer time and paperwork. The over administration and regulation of the health system has got to be reigned in. You get top level support and legal backup to resolve your issues quickly. (See pie chart for issue breakup.if relevant) Your fees are about half that charged by the QNU. You are treated like professionals instead of being used as a pawn for party political purposes. Not one cent of your hard earned membership money goes to any political party or cause. Everything goes to providing protection and advancement to you and your profession The rewards of nursing go to you and not the layers of administrators and HR people above you. E.B. negotiations are no longer done in secret in union offices. Instead they are negotiated openly with a focus on practical outcomes at each workplace by working nurses with     NPAQ help and advice. It is you and not the government who chooses who shall represent and protect you.Furthermore that whoever you choose as your representative has the same access to see         and assist you. It is you, the working nurse and not union officials who have a real say in the running of the health system. You will get professional recognition (post nominals) for your professional service and achievements through the NPAQ.
